Pro cycling team shacks up

Costa Blance becoming top of the list for cycling teams.

THE Costa Blanca is a favourite winter training destination for international and national cycling racing teams. 

Reliable weather and a terrain of mountains, uplands and lowlands provide everything that they require while preparing for the coming racing season.

One of those teams is Luxembourg-based Radioshack Leopard which recently chose Alfaz del Pi for the formal presentation of its 2013 team.

Thanks to the quality and service of its hotels, Alfaz is a logical choice for a team like Radioshack, said Sports councillor Paola Segura last week. 

And while the local weather and geography are attractive to sports tourists, they in turn help to alleviate the dependence of local businesses on the high season summer months, Segura added.
