Beautiful weather, perfect training conditions, a great venue and a friendly atmosphere all combined to make the 2011 BASE Camp a wonderful long weekend.

A big variation of training disciplines on offer made it possible for the participants to improve all their skillsets: long, scenic road rides, technical and flowing MTB trails, cross-country runs and ski/stand up paddleboard sessions were on offer, and many people opted to give everything a go.

The inclusive nature of the camp meant that there was no pressure on anyone, so top-level athletes and beginners all seemed to enjoy themselves regardless of experience or fitness levels.

The next BASE Camp will be held on the Labour Day long weekend in 2012 (March 10th, 11th and 12th) – get your name on the waiting list now by emailing [email protected], as only 20 places will be on offer.
