InfoCrank

MYPOWER Training Camps

WE ARE RUNNING TWO VERY SPECIAL CAMPS IN THE BEAUTIFUL REGION OF THE AUSTRIAN AND ITALIAN DOLOMITES IN 2018.

Each camp has an entirely different personality even though some of the same terrain is covered in each.

Both camps start and finish near Innsbruck in the wonderful Stubai Valley surrounded by the Austrian Dolomites and the glaciers of the main Alpine Ridge.

The first camp will be run in conjunction with Mike Cotty and Deb from the Col Collective and primarily showcases the area while teaching our guests how to ride and enjoy the mountains. Riders will also experience the InfoCrank® and learn how to pace in valleys and on the longer climbs. If you have always yearned to go to the Dolomites, but were not sure how you would cope, this has to be the camp for you. A feast for all the senses.

Later in the summer, in conjunction with Haute Route Training Partner, Alpine Cols, Verve is running a specific training camp. With the changes to the course and timing for this year’s Dolomites Haute Route, we also changed the camp to take in the famous Stelvio, from the epic side. That will be a day to remember, however there will be 6 others that will remain with you also. This will be a big miles week with lots of climbing. Do this camp and you will be ready for any one day or multi-day challenge.
