Dan's Belgian Training Camp - March 2018 2 weeks 6 days ago #10486

A few of you may know Dan Patten from Polocini trips and when he raced for the Wiggins cycling team. He's branched out into coaching and is offering the chance not just to get some support and advice but to watch some racing in Belgium and have a pretty awesome week away. For a change I'll be second in command and will be carrying the bags and doing the driving!!! He will advise you on everything from nutrition to using power. It's a very good opportunity for those who have considered coaching to actually spend some time with a pro cyclist.

As usual we will be based in Nokere. There is a variety of terrain and rides will be tailored to your requirements.

The trip is nine nights b&b only based on two sharing. Single rooms can be sorted at an extra cost. The accommodation is self catering but we will drive out to a restaurant at 7pm each evening. There are plenty of places to grab a snack or coffee on the road and this will be planned into your rides.

Friday 9th March - Hull ferry to Zeebrugge.
Saturday - Arrival in Belgium. Dan will do a morning briefing of the week ahead. There will be an easy ride out for coffee or for those who ride with power we will do some ftp tests. Evening meal in Oudenaarde.
Sunday - Nokere Koerse sportive. This sets off outside our front door! Evening meal at the ribs place! It's a great chance for Dan to ride with everyone over the course of the day.
Monday - recovery ride/will head to the cycling museum at Roesalare.
Tues- Ride tailored to your requirements.
Weds - Nokere Koerse race. Ride to the start and then around some of the course before settling down for a bbq. The race does several laps past our hq.
Thurs - Ride tailored to your requirements.
Friday - Handzame Classic race. There are several ride options for this day from 65 to 200km.
Saturday - coffee shop ride or hill reps for the sadists!! Hull ferry home.
Sunday - Return to Polocini Towers, Manchester for 11:30.

The cost for this week is £650 per person including return travel to Belgium. Dan will offer a month of free coaching after return from Belgium. I'll throw in a free Winter Sprinter entry for anyone who books before the end of December.

Post up any questions and Dan will answer.

Cheers

Just had a chat with someone about this who was worried it might be a bit hardcore. Any rides will be tailored to your requirements or if you don't want Dan's expert advice there's nothing to stop you turning up and having a jolly up for the week!!!
