The riders of Team Jumbo-Visma will travel to Gerlos, Austria, in July for two weeks. In the Alps, riders like Dutch time trial champion Jos van Emden, Koen Bouwman and Timo Roosen will prepare for the upcoming races.
“We’re looking forward to having a big part of the team together again”, trainer Tim Heemskerk says. “It’s nice to be with the riders and staff after a period of solely training and preparing. In the past months, the riders have kept their shape at a good level. With this training camp, they can go on the road again together.”
In Gerlos, the riders will prepare for the restart of the season. “We will do specific training in preparation of the classics in August like Strade Bianche and Milano-Sanremo, but also for stage races like the Tour of Poland and the Vuelta a Burgos. The area of the Zillertal is the perfect training location because of the nice climbs and the possibilities to ride on flat roads”, Heemskerk explains.

Close to Gerlos, in the Zillertal Arena, you can find the villages Zell am Ziller, Wald-Königsleiten and Krimml-Hochkrimml. Zillertal Arena is known as an Alps hotspot in winter. In summer, the holiday region is perfect for active vacationers. There are terrific mountain-bike trails and in the Durlassboden Reservoir you can go swimming, surfing and fishing. Besides that, there are a lot of other summer activities and adventures.
Our team will stay in Hotel Schönruh. The family-run hotel is in the centre of Gerlos and is the perfect base for the training camp.
