Yes, thanks … i did give that a read previously, but of course its not quite as definitive as I was hoping for.
After a re-read i still not certain (I’m a black and white kinda guy), so at this stage , and unless another idea comes along, I think I’m going to try :
Base - 10 weeks instead of 12
Build - full 8 weeks
Specialty - 3 weeks instead of 8
By default, I’ll be doing ‘race specific’ rides over the next 5 months anyway because I can ride outdoors all year round in Sydney, Australia and I’m free every 2nd weekend and I want to keep the bike handling and aero position familiarity … and if I’m going to ride for 4 or 5 or 6 hours, its definitely outdoor for me
So, i think that’s my place - I have 10 weeks of Mon-Fri indoor base training (with some long weekend outdoor rides) ahead of me to ponder this further
