SCAL­ING THE HEIGHTS

Procycling - - Dan Mclay -

In Fe­bru­ary, McLay trav­elled to Colom­bia to train at alti­tude for two weeks be­fore his irst big tar­get of Ku­urne-Brus­sels-Ku­urne on the open­ing week­end in Bel­gium. “I’ve al­ways wanted to try to do some­thing with alti­tude be­fore the Clas­sics, whether it was just a tent or what­ever, but I think ac­tu­ally be­ing there and get­ting 24-hour ex­po­sure is quite good,” he says. “We’re go­ing just out­side Medellin. Tim Har­ris is jump­ing on be­cause he loves Colom­bia, and so is Calvert Churchill [A young rider cur­rently sup­ported by the Dave Rayner Fund]. “It’s no big, or­gan­ised train­ing camp, but it should be quite re­laxed.”
