The Cofidis Paralympic Promises Team, with the collaboration of the Spanish Paralympic Committee (CPE) and the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation (RFEC), will hold this coming weekend, February 19, 20 and 21, a concentration to work with the young people chosen during the second edition of the Cofidis Paralympic Cycling Days, which took place last September.
The activity, which will take place at the facilities of the Camilo Jos Cela University (Madrid), will bring together the six cyclists who will make up the Cofidis Team of Paralympic Promises in 2021: Markel Alonso (17 years old, Vizcaya), Jaime Andrs (22 years old) , Madrid), Javier Gonzlez (19 years old, Madrid), Pau Navarro (26 years old, Barcelona) and Ander Albizu (19 years old, Guipzcoa), who were the five cyclists chosen in the selection process held in September, plus Juan Alberto Jimnez (23 years old, Zaragoza), from the previous edition.
Throughout the three days that the concentration will last, the cyclists of the Cofidis Team of Paralympic Promises, led by Begoa Luis, responsible for the project, will train on the Madrid roads with a very special company: Luis Miguel Garca-Marquina and Gonzalo Garca Abella , members of the Spanish Selection of Adapted Cycling with great results at the international level, who in addition to riding with them will contribute their experience to these young promises through a motivational talk. During the meeting, physical therapy evaluation will also be carried out to try to detect possible risk factors for injury, as well as exercise programs with a therapeutic objective.
Finally, the concentration will also serve to introduce the members of Cofidis Kids, the quarry of the Cofidis Team of Paralympic Promises: child athletes who enjoy cycling and dream of one day becoming great professionals.
