Mistake #1 is no sprint training which I have certainly been guilty of! But (as I posted in the comments of this blog post) does TR share some of the guilt here?
Even in the Crit Specialty program, are there really any sprint workouts? What does everybody think…are 4 or 5 180%-of-FTP 20second efforts a week enough to ‘train your sprint’ or do riders really need to get outside and do a Burgomaster or Almquist type sprint workout every week to stimulate sufficient adaptation?
I have no idea. What is the minimum sprint training load? Dunno.
