Team VC Bradford:Pennine Cycles:Stella Azzurra have just returned from their inaugural warm-weather training camp at Club La Santa Lanzarote.

It was so successful that plans are already beginning for next year's edition in the Canary Islands.

The camp was an ideal opportunity for members to get some cycling miles in their legs for the new cycle-racing season and, at the very least, the preparation was good at this time of year.
