After taking part in the weekend’s Haut Var in the South of France, the UK-based Endura team have stopped off in the area for a recovery and training.

On Monday, the squad headed out from the Roche Marina Hotel and up into the hills of Grasse, on the south-eastern coast of France.

The team’s next international racing appointment is at the Vuelta Ciclista a la Region de Murciain Spain.

The five-day event starts on Wednesday March 3, and Endura will field an seven-man squad comprising of Alexandre Blain, Evan Oliphant, Ian Wilkinson, Jack Bauer, James Moss, Rob Partridge and Ross Creber.

Endura had mixed fortunes at Haut Var, with Wilkinson and Bauer crashing during the first day’s racing – with Bauer ending up in hospital overnight with concussion.

Blain and Partridge fared better, finishing 85th and 90th overall after Sunday’s brutal stage.
