With temperature highs of 16 degrees and average daily sunshine of 7 hours, the winter months in Calpe are perfect to get some pre season training, it is no wonder most World Tour teams base themselves in Calpe over the winter months.
A Sample itinerary for the week would be as follows, however subject to change depending on weather and the group:
