Bahrain Merida Pro Cycling Team, a professional team that participates in the UCI ProTeam Category and that is led by the Italian cyclist Vicenzo Nibali, has chosen Cambrils Park Sport Village as the place to celebrate its first season’s concentration. They will stay from the 10th to the 22nd of January. The team will be accompanied, for a few days, by the Bahrain Merida Pro Cycling Team ambassador, the former professional cyclist Purito Rodríguez.
In the daytime, the Bahrain Merida Team will pedal around the area along with a team from Cycling Costa Daurada. They will also enjoy the Mediterranean diet thanks to the varied gastronomic offer provided at the Cambrils Park Sport Village’s Buffet. At night, they will recover energy resting at the apartments of the Resort’s Mediterranean area. During the team’s stay there will be a press conference for international journalists and sponsors where Nibali will also take part in.
The perfect combination of Cambrils Park Sport Village’s excellent facilities, the area’s roads and routes and the mild Mediterranean climate have been decisive to choose Cambrils and Costa Daurada as the destination for the team’s first training of the season.
