Lazio is a central Italian region bordering the Tyrrhenian Sea, and it was the heart of the ancient Roman Empire. At the southern end of the region, lies Cassino, a quiet city between Rome and Naples, located at the foot of Monte Cairo.
It was in this region, during the Second World War, that the Germans formed a strong line between the two seas called the Gustav Line. This was created to stop the Allied army from advancing towards Rome. The most violent and bloody battles took place in the territory of Cassino and 2019 marked the 75th anniversary of the destruction of the city and it’s monastery.
Victours Bike is pleased to offer a training camp which combines the discovery of this territory with the history of those terrible battles, that contributed to the modern and free Europe of today.
The camp is for avid cyclists who are looking for an intense sporting experience, immersed in a region with spectacular landscapes and unique locations to visit. The camp lasts 10 days, with 8 days dedicated to intense cycling training. The routes have been chosen based on their level of difficulty, the beauty of the surrounding landscape and the historical significance of the region. The best period for the training camp is May, but exceptions can be made for groups with a minimum of 10 cyclists.
