    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?

    Mid-winter training can be monotonous. While it is easy to crank up the tunes and tune out as you log the miles, disengaging from your rides can have serious performance consequences come ‘go’ time. Maximize your miles by incorporating focus intervals to your cycling training plan.

    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.

    Power training and indoor trainers simply belong together. The pure efficiency and controlled environment of training indoors partners amazingly well with precise training based on specific targeted power numbers.

    ToolBox: “If you fail to plan, you may as well plan to fail.” If you want to get the most out of your training program, you need a plan. Jumping on your bike and riding at random will help for a short time, but without a plan, you’ll eventually plateau out and fail to make gains.

    Michael Rasmussen,

    The societal pressure to be thin & beautiful can be an obsession to minimize body fat at all costs. Just how important is it for cyclists to be so lean, and what tests we can use to measure body fatness?

    The days are getting shorter, the big events have passed, and our attention is turning to preparation for next season. Cyclists and endurance athletes are entering the rest and transition phase that marks the start of off-season training.

    We are a week into La Vuelta and an upcoming major appointment is the 39 km TT on September 9. While the non-contenders will generally be treating it as a semi-rest day and take it as easily as it is ever possible in pro cycling, the GC battle will be massive here. But are there fundamental differences in pacing strategy between elite riders and lower category riders?

    Tour de France 2015 - stage 6

    Can you hear the cowbells in the distance? Sounds like cyclocross season is on the horizon. Cyclocross has to be one of the hardest forms of bicycling racing out there, and because of its short but uber intense race style, it requires some specialized training to ensure success.
