Cycling camp Sierra Nevada


The Centro de Alto Rendimiento (C.A.R.) is a hotel and sports facilities combined. It belongs to Higher Council of Sports – Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. At C.A.R. the focus is on training. From the athlete-friendly food offered in the restaurant to the quietness needed for recovery and sleep. Here you train with and like professional athletes from various sports.

The sports complex features almost everything else needed for training and recovery; a pool, gyms, turbo trainers, recovery and an outdoor running track that can also be used for cycling. Furthermore, C.A.R. offers bike storage, on-site medical assistance, test labs, a sauna area with recovery baths and even a DIY laundry service.

Due to the high altitude, this training camp location is not for the faint-hearted. However, if you ever wondered how it would be to live and train like a pro athlete this is your change! Most rides in the Sierra Nevada are tough but doable. You’ll be able to experience cycling on the highest roads in Europe!

For amateur teams, our support van(s) will be accompanying you on all the rides. In case of mechanical (or other) breakdowns, solutions are always at hand. Fancy only riding the descents one day? No problem, we have you covered with our van!

Some training camp highlights could include:

The mountainous scenery is truly breathtaking and inspiring and caters for great mountain cycling training.

At an altitude of 2320m, the hotel and sports facilities offer a unique possibility to experience the advantages and challenges of altitude training. We only recommend this camp to well-trained cycling teams and advice to add a few days to your training camp for acclimatisation to the altitude
