BAJA BARELLI CAMP
Mexico with YOANN BARELLI & KATRINA STRAND
This riding camp is based in the small fishing village of La Ventana, located on the eastern shore of Mexico’s Baja California along the glorious Sea of Cortez. You’ll ride with EWS sensation Yoann Barelli & professional rider & coach Katrina Strand. Days consist of a few hour morning ride and additional evening ride on the 133km of buffed trails a few pedal strokes from our seaside resort. The focus of this riding camp is to improve fitness for the upcoming riding season, learn some new riding and training techniques and most importantly have a ton of fun riding and holidaying in the sun. When not on the bike the options are close to perfect: sipping drinks in the shade, eating fish tacos, doing yoga, napping in a hammock, going on a deep-sea fishing excursion, snorkeling with whale sharks, surfing on the Pacific, SUP’ing, windsurfing or learning how to kite surf -- La Ventana boasts worldclass kitesurfing. Nights are spent staring up at the canopy of scattered-diamond stars and enjoying moments around a campfire. According to Singletracks website, La Ventana has six of the top ten trails in Mexico. Camp suitable for ‘strong-intermediate and above’ level riders, the trails aren’t very technical. Please email us for more information on what’s included and not included.
