CALPE, Spain – After an impressive 2021 season, TRINITY Racing has gathered in Spain for its first training camp in order to prepare for the 2022 season.
Putting in some good training miles on the road, the team have also been learning whilst off the bike with mechanic workshops on how to maintain their bikes. In addition, the team were joined for a couple of days by Patrick Murphy from Branding Sport – a creative marketing agency that works closely with TRINITY Racing – who was able to sit down with the riders and run through some social media strategy for the season ahead. With such a young roster it is great to be able to teach the riders important lessons now that will stand to them for the rest of their careers.
The team were also fortunate to have its key partner in Specialized join the camp to carry out bike fits for each rider using their Retül system.
Looking to build on its 2021 success on the road and trails, Team manager Ian Stannard is excited about what the year ahead holds:
“It’s great to be able to get the whole team together, get to know all the new riders, build some team spirit and, importantly, talk through goals and aspirations with each individual for 2022. Due to the pandemic we were not able to hold a training camp this year, which I do think was something that we really missed. It’s been a very steep learning curve for me this year stepping off the bike straight into the team car, but one that I have really enjoyed and I can’t wait to get stuck into 2022 knowing what to expect. These training camps are a great way for me to get close to the team to pass on my experience”
Director of Trinity Sports Management, who own and run TRINITY Racing, Andrew McQuaid, also joined the team in Calpe for a couple of days and commented:
“Owning this team is something that I am really proud that we do as an agency. We have created a great learning environment for young riders under the tutelage of some really experienced staff members who have been there and done it at the elite level of the sport. Holding the camp is an ideal opportunity for them to get to know each other. Not only are the riders fortunate to be able to learn from Ian (Stannard), but also other experienced former pros who TSM have worked closely with over the years, Philip (Deignan) and Peter (Kennaugh) who each joined the camp for a few days. It was also nice to have Ben (Healy), one of our 2022 WT graduates (joins EF Education next year), attend the winter camp. Having someone who has been in their shoes a year ago now training beside them going to WT just shows it’s obtainable for them too. The 2022 roster looks very exciting, for the road and MTB. I am particularly looking forward to integrating our two new male MTB riders into the team, who were 1-2 at the junior worlds this year, and helping them step up into the U23 ranks.”
