"We use this camp for simulating high level racing and use the local criteriums, TT's, MTB marathons and road races for doing it. Boys won't not only do the local calendar races, but accumulate also extra kilometers before and after the short races," explained Estonian U23 national team's coach and Tartu2024/BalticChainCycling.com's manager Rene Mandri.
"Boys in U19 and U23 category need racing for progressing. Besides, mentally it is easier to continue the training routine if you can accumulate the kilometers in a group," added Estonian national team's head coach Jaan Kirsipuu.
"We are not sure yet if the races in the new UCI calendar will take place, there is no insurance that the races will really happen. So, it is important that we have races in Baltics already and boys get the needed racing kilometers. One thing is for sure, the Baltic Chain Tour will happen and it will be one of the main targets for Tartu2024/BalticChainCycling.com at the moment," finished Mandri.
