"The roads in Alabama are perfect to get in your early season miles. 1-3 weeks down there is an excellent way to start off your season. After riding a huge amount of miles in the rolling hills, you're ready to put in the intensity that will turn into race wins in the coming season. The time I spent there in 2008 really helped me prepare for the start of the year. After the camp in Alabama I went to the Tour of Taiwan stage race and got my first top 10 finish in a UCI race."
