Oliva Beach & Golf Resort (Valencia): from 9 to 11 October
New dates, new location. The eighth edition of the Selection Campus of the Alberto Contador Foundation will finally be held from October 9 to 11 at the Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort facilities. Next to the Mediterranean, in the headquarters of the pre-season concentrations of the continental and sub23 teams of the Alberto Contador Foundation, in the same magnificent location where the official presentations of all the teams also take place every January. The registration period will remain open until September 28th.
During this period, all those interested in participating will be able to formalize their candidacy in the existing form on the website of the junior team of the Alberto Contador Foundation. Once the registration period has closed, on October 1st all pre-registrants will be informed whether or not they have been selected and, if so, how to proceed next. The Campus will be held following a rigorous prevention protocol in the context of the epidemiological situation in Spain due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is a great satisfaction for us to be able to welcome the great project of the Foundation whose values of effort and improvement we completely share. We are convinced that the facilities of Oliva Nova and the exceptional surroundings will meet all the needs required for an event of this importance. For our part, we are going to put all our efforts into ensuring that those attending enjoy them and, why not, help to forge the next champions in the world of cycling”, said Sandra Düster, Sales Director of Oliva Nova Beach & Golf Resort.
Francisco Javier Contador, general manager of the Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team: “For us the Selection Campus is one of the most beautiful moments of the whole year, without a doubt. And that is why we are always looking forward to it. It is a fundamental activity within the Foundation that, being aware of the priority of any issue concerning public health, we wanted to organize yes or yes whenever possible. In Aragon unfortunately the situation is not the best and requires acting responsibly, which is a pity for the support we have always found within La Mafia se sienta a la mesa. In the magnificent surroundings of Oliva Nova, one of our great supports and which always opens its doors to us, we have all the guarantees so that it can be celebrated minimizing the risks”.
Between Friday and Sunday, riders in the cadet category and first-year youth riders will face an intense agenda of activities, talks, personal interviews and group dynamics in search of the new cyclists who will join the junior team of the Alberto Contador Foundation for the 2021 season. If in the two previous editions the guests were the professional riders Diego Pablo Sevilla and Juan Pedro López, on this occasion the protagonist who will share his experience with the cyclists will be the Kometa-Xstra Cycling Team rider Alejandro Ropero. The bicycle will also have its moment, on Sunday morning, and also with the presence of the cyclist from Granada, by some of the routes that crosses the Gran Fondo Alberto Contador.
