Preparations for the upcoming season of 2022 are in full swing. Team Bahrain-Victorious gathered in Altea, Spain, for almost 14 days. After the offseason and ready for new challenges, Jan says:
»Season 2022 is already in full swing. After a long break in October, I started my trainings in November. The first days were hard because my body had to get used to moving again, but training intensity increased slowly, and I made a nice base for more difficult trainings. Like every year, I did lots of other sports during November and December, such as running, hiking, MTB, cross country skiing (if there was snow), and core exercises, which I do every second day. I also focus on breathing exercises and stretching. Both are very important to avoid injuries, especially when you do so much different sports.
I’m currently on a team training camp here in Spain for almost two weeks. We did all the medical checks, had meetings regarding the race program and the upcoming season, met the new guys, and trained well in the sunny weather. Training camp is slowly coming to an end, and when I come back home, I will still do a couple of trainings. I will take an active rest during the holidays because I will attend two more training camps in January and February before racings start. I’m happy with my performance for this time of the year. I’m fully motivated and very excited for the first races to start.”
