With the arrival of winter the days become cold and dark, unfavourable conditions that cyclists and professional athletes must suffer to continue their training. But in Spain there is a privileged area where the average temperature in winter is 18º and more than 97% of the days are sunny and windless: the Costa Blanca in Alicante.

And right here is the Hotel Capnegret, in Altea, near Calpe. This is a very popular cycling accommodation because of its location and facilities and is being chosen by more and more WolrdTour teams as the centre of operations during their concentrations.

Hotel Capnegret Altea, a perfect space for cyclists, teams and brands

The Hotel Capnegret is located in the town of Altea, in Alicante, Spain, a privileged environment by the Mediterranean Sea and protected by the Sierra de Bernia which generates a subtropical microclimate in the area, with warm temperatures and no wind throughout the winter.

Completely renovated in 2019, the hotel offers facilities adapted to the needs of cyclists, teams and brands.

Facilities designed for athletes and cycling teams

Its multiple halls and multifunctional rooms have hosted everything from presentations of brands such as Scott, Mondraker, Decathlon, Canyon, Garmin or Moustache, to daily meetings of teams such as Bahrain McLaren, AG2R La Mondiale, Ineos, Deceuninck-Quick Step, ABSOLUTE ABSALON, KMC Orbea, BH TEMPLO CAFÉ, DMTCycling, Movistar or the Royal Spanish Cycling Federation (in all its disciplines).

In its facilities the Hotel Capnegret has a Bike Center, the new Cap Negret Bike Zone, at the service of the clients with 440 m2 of bike point, 11 boxes with capacity for more than 300 bikes, massage room, washing machine and dryer room, pressure washers for the bikes where they can be repaired, washed and stored with total security. This area is for the exclusive use of clients of the Hotel Capnegret in Altea and has all access controlled.

The Costa Blanca, and especially Altea, offers an ideal orography for cycling, with a great variety of road routes where you can go through stages with flat profiles and close to the sea or stages with demanding climbs up to 1950m. From the hotel you can reach the mythical port of Coll de Rates, for example.

Anti-COVID-19 measures and protocols

With the current pandemic, the Hotel Capnegret has put in place intensive, proven anti-COVID-19 measures and protocols. Following the implementation of these measures, the Spanish Cycling Federation chose Capnegret Altea for a long stay of 45 days where it carried out various concentrations and technical preparations of its teams including press conferences with national and international media.

In addition, the Capnegret Altea now offers a hybrid solution for hosting meetings or physical presentations with limited capacity for security and at the same time with online participants.
