Starting in January, the Pro cyclists are training very hard during the cold winter months using training sites as Calpe and Altea to hone their form and fitness ahead of the races.
The certified Cycling Friendly Hotels are the choice, offering and providing the opportunity to prepare and improve facing a year full of races, from the Classic Spring and big laps like the Tour de France, Tour of Italy or Tour of Spain.
From January 10, 2020, the Deceuninck-Quick Step team will once again present their team at our certified Hotel Suitopia Sol and Mar Suites.
Said by Patrick Lefevere himself - CEO - Deceuninck-Quickstep Team “Suitopia is our winter training basis, offering great facilities. Taking the whole team and staff abroad several times a year is a challenge and this can perfectly be done in Suitopia. With the best staff, we really believe that our stay here is a big part of our success in recent years. All photo sessions, events and presentations to the press …can be completed in the hotel. With the knowledge that Calpe, from the course terrain to the likely weather conditions is a fantastic training site. And, of course, the catering highlights the large range of supports to the nutrition of our cyclists. ”
The Suitopia Sol and Mar Suites Hotel will host the Astana Pro Team on January 17. Calpe is undoubtedly a cycling paradise frequented by pros.

It’s no news that Majorca is a paradise for professionals and amateurs, although we can rarely enjoy the presence of these superb cyclists on our roads!
Thanks to cycling applications such as Strava and the social networks of professional cyclists, we can know almost in real time where the pros and Strava's profile of the INEOS Team runners train during these days. It will leave you stunned!
And Geraint Thomas has taken his pre-season training in Mallorca very seriously! What better way to explore Majorca to enjoy its amazing landscapes and roads than a complete tour of the island, similar to the tour of the @Mallorca312!
Given that last year, Geraint Thomas himself acknowledged that he had relaxed excessively in preseason, after conquering his first Tour de France. Despite this, in 2019 he finished 2nd in the gala round, behind his teammate Egan Bernal.
The British cyclist, aged 33, is currently in Mallorca, in the pre-Christmas concentration of the INEOS Team.
Thomas uploaded a photo of his Garmin to social networks: a total of 309.4 km in eight hours and 35 minutes, at an average speed of 36 km/h. A true luxury for cyclists who crossed paths with their idols in this first great preseason, although they could keep up with them for only a while.
Taking a look at Strava's profiles, we see that some of his teammates accompanied him in part of the journey, but, according to his data, none completed the more than 300 kilometers that Thomas made.
Filippo Ganna traveled 167 km in five and a half hours, while MichałKwiatkowski and the new signing Richard Carapaz did not reach 100: the Polish cyclist made 67 and the Ecuadorian, 93.
Ethan Hayter, another of the new ones of the INEOS Team for 2020, aged 21, was the one that approached more, with 181 km in almost 6 hours.
