Almuñécar: destination Burgos BH for 2022
Burgos BH is preparing for an intense road season in Almuñécar-La Herradura in 2022.
The UCI ProTeam has an impressive start of the season ahead, with participation in the Challenge Ciclista Mallorca, the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, the Vuelta a Murcia or the Vuelta a Andalucía as some of the first challenges to be faced by its cyclists.
For the occasion, one more season the team has decided to carry out a Training Camp in the Cycling Friendly municipality of Almuñécar-la Herradura. This municipality, located a few kilometres from the cities of Granada and Malaga and surrounded by the Sierra de la Almijara, has invested heavily in recent years in its aim to bring the benefits of cycle tourism to the area, in the heart of the Costa Tropical. That is why professional teams are strongly interested in Almuñécar-la Herradura for one of their Training Camps.
So, these days we can see Jetse Bol, Ángel Madrazo, Dani Navarro and company getting ready for the start of the competitions.
The Team, staying at Hotel Helios Costa Tropical
Hotel Helios Costa Tropical is the nerve centre of Burgos BH during the Training Camp, with a privileged location on the beachfront of Playa de San Antonio.
This Cycling Friendly certified hotel has the best amenities for cyclists, with a Cycling Center and a complete spa with sauna, Turkish bath, outdoor jacuzzi and room for treatments and massages.
During these first few days, team cyclists such as Óscar Pelegrí have made special mention of the good treatment received during their stay.
The first route, from Almuñécar to Benajarafe
To open the Training Camp, the team opted for an out-and-back coastal route that starts in Almuñécar and goes as far as Benajarafe, from where the return journey starts. A mainly flat route with about 1,000 m of positive elevation gain, ideal for adding kilometres at a good pace.
