History

A state-of-the-art training center encompassing the full array of the endurance sports world, crafted in the image of the legendary Mapei Sports Centre in Italy.

North of Milan, Italy, nestled among the hilly roads of Varese, where cycling is more a religion than sport, lies the Mapei Sport Centre and the inspiration for our own indoor training center. Mapei revolutionized the sport of cycling when they opened their doors in 1996 by introducing a physical location that encompassed everything an endurance athlete could possibly want under one roof. Now athletes could meet with their coaches, perform crucial testing in the lab, have their position on the bike dialed in, perform strength training in the gym, or undergo physical therapy or rehab from injuries, all under one roof. It became a home for the athlete’s sporting life, the beating heart to his athletic world.

Over the years nearly every top rider has passed through Mapei’s doors. As a teenager just beginning his own long career, Mike Norton read about the Mapei Centre in Cycle Sport Magazine and was inspired. The fascination continued over the course of his racing career and as he transitioned over to the coaching side of the sport, to the point that he would eventually visit the Mapei Centre in person – during his honeymoon no less!
