UK junior team Glendene CC were in the Vercors, France, last week for a training camp to prepare for the upcoming junior Tour of Wales.
The team stayed with Velo Vercors, a cycling holiday company run by Teresa Hart and ex-GB international Roger Dunne.
Dunne is the Glendene team member and British junior 25 mile champion Conor Dunne's uncle. The team, managed by another ex-international and former pro Bob Downs, put in a hard week in the Vercors mountain range just west of the high Alps.
Long rides were interspersed with faster sessions, and on the penulitimate day the team did a ride that will feature in an upcoming issue of Cycling Weekly.
Returning to the UK via Belgium the team tested their legs in the Omloop Van Lauw. The result was a one-two for Conor Dunne and Tom Moses.
Unfortunately the other Glendene riders, Paul Young and Al Murison suffered a puncture and crash respectively, but the team will still start as one of the favourites in Wales.
