Girona Pro Weekend with Dennis van Winden en Robert Gesink
This is your chance to treat yourself to a once in a lifetime cycling adventure. Dennis van Winden will host an all Girona Pro Weekend. AND he will bring his big time training buddy and friend Robert Gesink along! Pre-subscribe now, get yourself in the only 10 spots available and make cycling memories.
Does Girona need any explanation? Probably not. It is Europe’s cycling paradise for a great number of reasons, hence why more than half of the pro peloton settled down in this lovely city. Dennis and Robert will not show you the standard Girona cycling experience though. No, you’re in for a treat, you will go all Pro!
“This experience is not the ‘usual’ Girona cycling experience. Together with Robert, I planned our favorite insiders routes and ‘hidden’ training roads. It will be epic for sure.”
The Hors Categorie, the healthy food, specialty coffee and cycle cafe in Girona, will be the home and club house of your weekend. The place to start and finish your rides. With the right amount of caffeine, the chef’s delicious and healthy meals, drinks, bike parking and showers, there is everything a rider needs.
You will meet with Dennis and Robert at Hors Categorie Girona for good coffees and breakfast to be all ready for the day ahead. The guys will take you out for a five hours ride on their favorite roads and hidden gems, including a stopover.
Back at Hors Categorie a shower is waiting for, or you head back to your residence to fresh up for the evening program. The grande finale of today. An intimate dinner with the guys is waiting for you. Catch up with Dennis and Robert on the experience of the day over great food and drinks. Also on the program is a live Q&A session with Robert. All your questions about living and training as a pro and life in the peloton will be answered.
On Sunday you will meet up with Dennis and Robert for the second day of the Girona Pro weekend. The guys will take you out for a three hours ride including a stopover. But not before you kicked off with a good dosis of caffeine and breakfast at the Hors Categorie, the home and club house of your pro weekend.
After another day of enjoying the guys’ favorite roads, it’s time to finish off this super exclusive weekend with food and drinks. Time for a last catchup with Dennis and Robert, goodbyes and everlasting memories. The guys will make sure to finish in time for everyone who plans to be traveling out of Girona that day.
