The Pico de las Nieves, the highest mountain on the island of Gran Canaria, was the last and spectacular destination of #FollowContador training camp, organized along five days by Polartec and Alberto Contador Foundation to reward the winners of this call, cycling fans from ten European countries: Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.
#FollowContador Contest winners have had the privilege of sharing for five intense days the daily life of a true ‘training camp’ with some of the Under 23 riders of Alberto Contador Foundation and members of its technical staff. As if something was lacking, the camp was joined by Alberto Contador himself and two of his best friends and teammates, Ivan Basso and Jesus Hernandez.
During #FollowContador training camp, Polartec offered to all participants a last generation cyclist kit, designed to equip riders of Under 23 and Junior teams in the 2017 season. The goal of the campus was also to test these new Polartec materials to optimize products that cyclists will use in the immediate future.
Throughout the days of #FollowContador, participants had the opportunity to live and personally meet both professional Tinkoff riders and future champions of Alberto Contador Foundation, besides deepening by the hand of its technicians on mechanical, nutrition and preparation issues.
This first #FollowContador campus also was attended by the president of Polartec, Gary Smith, along with some of his closest collaborators, with whom shared the workouts scheduled close to Alberto Contador and his men, making each day a spectacular squad of around fifty riders, equipped with the latest Polartec products, a brand that next season will be the main sponsor of Alberto Contador Foundation Teams.
