MOJACAR has become the official headquarters for the Belgian Cycling Federation as the first groups of Belgian cyclists arrive for the spring training season. Sports travel agency, Kortweg, organises the events which last throughout the winter months.
Agency manager and professional cyclist, Jan Almeye, said Mojacar ranked as one of the top destinations for cycling, along with Mallorca and Calpe. Rabobank trainer, Piet Kuijs, agreed, saying the area had a fantastic range of challenging routes.
More than 100 amateur and professional cyclists are currently in situ in the official hotel, the Marina Beach. The hotel provides a range of facilities for the cyclists including mechanical areas, therapy rooms and special early breakfasts.
