Sky, Katusha, Lotto Soudal, Astana, Movistar, etc do their preparation in Tenerife
Pro cycling teams such as SKY, ASTANA, KATUSHA, MOVISTAR, LOTTO, BELKIN, etc, have all trained here, and it was on the island´s smooth, sun-baked roads that Team Sky´s Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome sculpted their Tour de France successes.
On his personal website, Froome wrote: “kilometre after kilometre of twisty uphill the road snaked up into the clouds taking us to what I would imagine travelling to Mars would be like, black volcanic rocks and undulating heaps of sand and shrubs surrounded us”
Wiggins has declared: “there is not other environment that can beat Mount Teide. We have altitude, heat and virtually empty roads most days”
