High-Altitude Endurance Training Camp Requirements

High-Altitude Endurance Training Camp Commencement

High-Altitude Endurance Training Camps always begin with a pre-camp coaching talk. This gets you prepped for the week/weekend, allows you to meet your fellow riders, provides time to complete required paperwork, and helps us get a feel for who’ve we’ve got with us and what everyone would like to get out of their time at camp.

Precamp talks for Kirkwood are always held at 7:00 pm on Thursday night, with riding starting at 8:00 am on Friday morning.

Please make sure your travel arrangements accommodate getting to the designated home-base hotel in time for the pre-camp talk and meet and greet.

More information about the pre-camp talk and the camp schedule will be provided as soon as you register!
