The ongoing coronavirus pandemic may have thrown the off-season out of kilter, but most teams are now ramping up their pre-season preparations with full training camps.

Main pre-season camps usually take place in December but the vast majority of teams are only just getting together, due to the late finish to the 2020 season and the delayed start to 2021.

The most popular destination is the Costa Blanca in southeast Spain, with Deceuninck-QuickStep, Trek-Segafredo, Team DSM, Team BikeExchange, AG2R Citroën, Astana, and FDJ all there at the moment. Bora-Hansgrohe have bucked the trend and gone to Italy, while UAE Team Emirates are the only team not in Europe, currently in the team's native UAE.

The camps are a chance for riders to move through the gears in terms of building individual condition and working as a team.

We've gathered plenty of photos from these camps, so click or swipe through the gallery above to see how the teams are building up to 2021.
