Travelling to southern countries during the cold days in northern Europe is a part of winter training for the upcoming downhill season. Riders from CTM Racing Team attend two training camps. One with their enduro bikes and one with DH bikes. This enduro training camp took place a few weeks ago in one of the well known enduro locations - Finale Ligure in Italy. Training was oriented on both downhill technique and fitness. Lukas Ucen, Martin Knapec and current Slovak national DH champion Adam Rojcek are riders who took part in this trip along with team manager Tomas Toth. It was also a good chance to test a new modified CTM Scroll which is an enduro bike from CTM.

 I love finale, but I think it is a bit misleading as the weather is changeable until May. I've been over Easter and had loads of rain and mud. Even in June once there were wet days. That being said, there are always some tracks that dry quickly and it sure is fun when the sun shines!

 I was considering going, but didn't because of the weather forecast. I was already feeling bad scrolling through the pictures, so I'm kind of happy to see your reply...

 Brave move... The weather there is more volatile than you'd expect. But February? Screw that. The pool's not even usable then.

 @BenPea: That's true, only through the downtube. It was the steep "seatstay" (if you can call it like that on a fully) that made me think of Giant.

 @vinay: I know exactly what you're talking about. 2009 Reign. Pre-2010 Giant geek here. Don't know much after that... And it is a seat stay.
