    Life sometimes gives us moments to reflect on who we are and why we do some things. What is your motivation for cycling? When it’s crunch time, what do you hold onto as the reason you are gutting it out rather than dropping off?

    You feel ready. You have done the training, the hours of riding and zone specific work to fully prepare your body for the onslaught to come. But is your bike as ready as you are? Go beyond just cleaning your bike to see how to make sure your bike is well-prepped for your race or Gran Fondo.

    Delving into Matt Hayman’s Paris-Roubaix winning power file, we can see that pushing on the pedals over 6 hours, 9 minutes and 22 seconds required 6696 kilojoules of energy. What are the implications of kilojoules for cyclists and nutritional intake?

    How deep can you go and how much do you have left in the tank? Part of it is how much you are willing to suffer, but the bigger picture is how much energy you still have to spare during the ride. What if there was a way to model and monitor that in your training?

    Sprinting is a primary component of cycling for racers and recreational riders alike, but it's often neglected in training programs. Base miles are in the bank and functional threshold power (FTP) has been raised, and with race season kicking off, it’s now time to build some speed.

    As endurance athletes we have so much to focus on. Training, hydration, sleep, equipment, getting enough protein, carbohydrates, how about good fats? How fast are we? Are we climbing well? Sleeping well? What about calcium and bone health?

    It’s that time of year for many of us: the snow is melting, the days are getting longer, and we are more than ready to divorce our trainers. This means our base training period is ending and we’re moving into the “build” period.

    Once you know your own or your team’s racing schedule and you have analyzed the course, the next step is to put the actual team together and a plan for the race. What are the moves that define a well-oiled team versus a chaotically random team of individuals?

    Santos Tour Down Under 2016 stage 5

    If we have been diligent in our offseason training, we have likely done some nice foundational work to build up our base fitness and functional threshold. But now it’s February and those gains might be stagnating. How do we build on this base fitness and also meet the needs of our riding goals?

    The New Year often brings new resolutions. For most cyclists, at least one of those resolutions involves reaching higher levels of performance than we’ve ever achieved before. This is easier said than done, but it is possible to push through the cycling fitness plateau to achieve this lofty resolution.

    You can learn a lot about yourself and your training priorities from your power profile, primarily your average maximal power over 5 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minute, and 60 minutes (functional threshold power). But dig deeper and you can better understand your fatigue profile, giving even more insight into yourself as a rider.

    Toolbox: Last week, we gave a general overview of a valuable set of basic testing to perform in order to obtain your general power profile. The next step, of course, is to dissect that data further to gain deeper insight into out strengths and limitations. From there, we also need to develop a plan to move forward and achieve our cycling goals.
