Default Training Camp

So later next month my team is having a 5-day training camp.

For those who have attended/organized successful team camps,
can you suggest some training activities that went well?

I want to do something better than just rolling around as a big
group each day for 5 hours.

thanks

hmm, training activities for a 5 day camp?
1) try rolling up your shorts and getting a good tan line.
2) give everyone a nickname, pick out something funny, fatness is
always funny.
3) drive down to jaurez, or whatever border town, pick up some
supplies - norandren 50 is cheap and will
make you strong and virile as a bull.
hopefully, you're at least a cat.1, in which case you could just go to
arizona and race in Feb,
back in the day you could do usery pass, parker dam, VOS, and some
more, like 15 days of
racing
If you're pro, you wouldn't need to ask this question...why would
anyone else need a
training "camp"
I was riding up my local route yesterday and saw the vaginators
training camp,
4 riders, then a bunch of stragglers chasing, so those guys were
racing each other, the
team car left the stragglers behind.
They didn't wave.
Your team must have a large budget, why not spend the traning camp
money
on superweek or something like that? you can race 21 days straight,
thats pretty good training.
If you want some early season racing go to Mexico, it's cheap and the
supplies are plentiful.

Not pros, training camp is just a term, more like a gathering of
riders, and everyone is paying his own way.
