Would love to hear anyone’s experience(s) with attempting breakaways. As race season is still a few weeks away, the reality of racing hasn’t set in and in my mind I’m poised to be a breakaway threat! lol (my repeatable 7min power will be at 4.5 w/kg halfway through sustained power build, so maybe?) Although the first road race I can do is 65miles, I don’t really see myself trying to do anything nuts there, I’ll take risks on some shorter events!
Anyhow, just curious to hear, among other things, at what percent of ftp do you usually go to make a break stick and for how long, and ultimately where do you settle for pace? I’m thinking mostly about some road races, but of course any crit stories are welcome too!
