Kinetic PB has announced the official launch of their Tri Lodge training camp venue in Cuevas del Almanzora, Almeria, Andalucia, Southern Spain.
“Our launch is significant for all clubs and European athletes,” said Oliver Watts, co-founder of Kinetic PB, “as we believe that we have the best swimming, cycling and running training location in Europe. The climate in this region is fantastic, being the warmest, driest and sunniest location in the whole of continental Europe.”
The venue was originally built in 2004 for the rowing and canoeing events of the 2005 Mediterranean games. The spectacular setting was completed with a budget of €14.5m and has now been developed into a training lodge and event centre for triathletes, cyclists and swimmers by Kinetic PB.
The Tri Lodge swimming channel is particularly impressive. An enormous 1,150m long and 115m wide offering controlled environment swimming. There are multiple buoys providing courses for open water drills. This is supported by the Kinetic PB 25m indoor pool and the nearby Mediterranean Sea.
Cycling in Almeria is already recognised as one of the best places to train and offers a complete range of challenging rides.
Within the Tri Lodge facility, athletes can expect;
Onsite timing system for races and training
25m indoor pool (1.8m – 2.4m deep)
1150m open water swimming channel
Running and cycling routes (on and off road)
Tri Lodge with massage room, stretching zone, meeting room, dormitories, kitchen, lounge and changing facilities
Corporate training facilities
Kinetic PB has launched an impressive programme for 2012 which includes training camps with Tanja Slater’s ‘Up and Active’ and Tridynamic’s Andalucían camp with Joe Friel. The 2012 Kinetic PB race event schedule provides everything from regular multisport challenges to the open water swimming series along the beautiful Almeria coast line. Swimming time trials in the lake and underwater video analysis all add to the experience.
Motorway links make the site easily accessible, approximately 50 minutes from Almeria airport, 80 minutes from Murcia and two hours from Alicante.
