"And when we start to race, I can not say that I live somewhere because I live everywhere. Yes, I spend time in Pamplona, ​​but usually I'm at home for one week and then in a race for another."

Where the road takes you. Belarusian Vasil Kiryienka has his family in Belarus but during the season he lives in Pamplona. The time trial champion is a cycling nomad.

 

Kiryienka (1981) currently trains at the Team Sky camp in Port d'Alcudia. "For years, I have prepared in Mallorca. With good weather, you have everything, massage, food ... everything is easier when you can hang out with wouth mates," he tells Biciciclismo.

 

The Belarusian rider is a nomad. "And when we start to race, I can not say that I live somewhere because I live everywhere. Yes, I spend time in Pamplona, ​​but usually I'm at home for one week and then in a race for another. Last year, for example, I was in Belarus after the Giro, then two weeks in Sestriere, raced Poland, the Vuelta and the Worlds. After a short meeting in London, I went home in late October and was then at the team training camp in Mallorca and returned to Belarus for Christmas. I have three children and I have to be with them as much as possible. I live around the world."

 

The many changes require him to adapt to the weather.  "Last year my children almost did not see the snow and this year when I was at the airport to travel to Mallorca, the temperature was 24 degrees below zero. The maximum was 16-18, always below zero. In these conditions you cannot train. It is a big difference and you have to get used to it. Therefore it is important for me to be in Mallorca, to make the body adapt, and live where the races are," he explains. In fact, he confesses that his body has not yet adapted to this sudden change of -30 at home to 20 degrees in Mallorca. 

 

"My oldest daughter Yulia is 9 years old, Alexey is five and Daria is less than two years. It is enough, I think. My wife always tells me they miss me, but I don't bring them to Europe because it will be difficult for them to live in a place where they don't know anybody. They have been in Pamplona for ​​a month or a month and a half, but it was a summer vacation," he recalls.
