Team goal in 2017
The Latchem Sunwise team arrived their training camp in Spain. The first week of training has been fantastic. On a flat coastal route, they headed to the mountains. ‘We are glad we had our Sunwise sunglasses on’. The training route contained a fair bit of climbing and some sprint intervals to help our team riders fine tune for the season ahead. The followings are the 2017 events.
