I didn't know there was one. Sorry.
Tenerife and Majorca have been THE training camp destinations for pros and amateurs for as long as I can remember.
I have been to training camps on both islands dozens of times, before and after the EPO era
Not to say it doesn't see its share of suspect action, but it didn't become popular because of it.
