Lotto Belisol are in Mojacar for over one week to prepare together for season 2013. A year in which Lotto Belisol can look forward again to Jurgen Van den Broeck, André Greipel, Jürgen Roelandts and Jelle Vanendert are the leaders. Each on their own terrain they will, supported by their teammates, try to show oneself and put Lotto Belisol on the international cycling map.


Jürgen Roelandts: “A training camp is important for different reasons. First of all there is the climate, which differs day and night with the weather in Belgium. Apart from that we train here in group, which is always very motivating. The trainings are balanced perfectly, in function of the start of the season. And you are living on a perfect cycling rhythm. Every year I look forward to the training camp in December. I find this one the most fun, because everyone is here, you get to see everyone again after a pretty long time. I will ride the Tour Down Under, so I won’t go to the training camp in January.”


“My fractured vertebra and broken collarbone are in the past. 2013 can begin. Of course the Flemish classics will be my first goal. I call it my playground, and I had to miss it past season, which really hurt. Lars Bak was the second of our leaders who was injured, so I guess we will be stronger at the start in 2013.”


Jurgen Van den Broeck: “We are here for the second year in a row; this location is perfect, there isn’t a lot of traffic on our training route, which is important when you are here with such a big group. The atmosphere is relaxed, which differs from during the season and this is the ideal opportunity to enlarge the team spirit. There hasn’t changed much to the team, but everyone is again very motivated and stronger than a year ago. And the most important: we already know each other very well.”


“The focus will indeed be on the Tour, but every race is important. Each time I’ll start, I will be motivated to set a result as good as possible. You can win points everywhere. Every year people ask me if it is possible to do better than a fourth place in the Tour and every edition I try to do it as good as possible. But if I will succeed, is difficult to say at this point.”
