This Sunday, March 12, the 3rd Melcior Mauri Costa Daurada Cycling Camp was closed at the Cambrils Park Business & Events Convention Center. Melcior Mauri, who gives his name to the camp and is the event director, along with the rest of the organisation, gave thanks for the presence of two professional excyclists, Miguel Indurain and Claudio Chiappucci, who have ridden the routes, wheel to wheel, with the 200 cyclists who have participated in this edition. Miguel Indurain was not able to attend the closing event due to family commitments, but Claudio Chiappucci wanted to thank those who have been "3 days in cycling and friendship, where we have been able to share magical moments with all the people who have participated".
The closure of the campus was also attended by Cambrils tourism councilor Mercè Dalmau and Jaume Rué of Cycling Costa Daurada. Mercè Dalmau wanted to point out that it is she, as a tourist director and not the person responsible for sports, who has attended the event since "for years we have worked with sports tourism so that we can have visitors all year and help more people to get to know the area”.
Melcior Mauri, meanwhile, has concluded the act with a video where he talked about his professional career and talked about the campus: "the goal of living this camp with two great professional ex cyclists we have fulfilled”, he said, adding that now a questionnaire will be sent to all participants "to continue improving and continue to enhance what has gone well”.
Campus Melcior Mauri, third successful edition – with prizes!
The cycle camp “Melcior Mauri”, which had its nerve center within the facilities of Cambrils Park Sport Village, has offered the possibility of enjoying four days of pure cycling alongside renowned idols of this sport. The good location of the Sport Village on the Costa Daurada, an area famous for its gastronomy, little traveled roads and the landscapes, have helped to configure the routes in the Priorat, the mountains of Prades and the Montsant.
During the closing ceremony a lot of prizes were awarded to the participants, either from sponsors or from cycling products in general. The winners took lots of KH7 products, a TwoNav GPS, lots of W2W sports cream, two Extreme brand bicycle helmets, two Campagnolo brand bicycle wheels, a Bkool Pro brand bike carrier, and one Weekend for two in Cambrils Park Resort with half board included.
At the end of the event, Melcior Mauri wanted to thank everyone for the great participation of this year where numbers reached 200 registered cyclists and also highlighted the participation of the first group of women cyclists on the camp: "For us it is a pride to have tripled the number of women participating in the Campus and, we hope that in the next editions this number will continue to grow."
