Triathlon Plus Magazine chose Brevet as “Best for the Luxury Experience” in their guide to the best pre season training camps in Europe.
Brevet’s Cyclotour du Léman Training Camp was highlighted as the 180km sportive around Lac Léman is ideally suited to triathletes looking for a concentrated cycling training block to get ready for a triathlon or Ironman.

Triathlon Plus Magazine Review
If the prospect of cycling among the beautiful scenery of the Swiss Alps, swimming in mountain lakes and running through pine forests doesn’t get your juices flowing, then hopefully the luxury accommodation and full board, including a chance to try Swiss wines, will do.
Training camps are run from hotels in three locations – Les Diablerets, Meiringen and Andermatt – and all have running trails and open-water swimming nearby, along with cycling routes that regularly feature in the Tour de Romandie and Tour de Suisse.
Triathletes can join one of Brevet’s organised cycling breaks (such as the Cyclotour du Léman Training Camp in May) and the organisers will be happy to help you add runs and open-water swims, or you can take the bespoke option for your training plans while you are there.
Trips are guided by Tom Eeles, a keen triathlete and British Cycling coach, and he is happy to tailor the perfect training schedule to meet your group’s needs. A typical bespoke schedule would take in an open-water session focusing on breathing and sighting, a cycle round Lac Leman, cycle time trialing, speed drills in the open-air pool and transition training. All sessions are followed, of course, by a delicious meal prepared with local, fresh ingredients.
Pre Season Training Camp
If you are looking for a great way to kick start you season then combine climbing sessions in the Alps with race practice in a Swiss sportive on Brevet’s Cyclotour du Léman Training Camp.
