Alright guys and gals, here’s what I’m looking at. I’ve got an early-season race toward the end of May. I wouldn’t call it an A race, but it’s one I’ve finished in the top 5 on back-to-back occasions and this year I’d love to win it.
It’s a 100km mile rolling gravel race with a 4km @ 5.5% climb that starts after the neutral rollout. This usually establishes the lead group. The only other climb comes at 40km which is 4.5 @ 3%, there’s nothing crazy after, just good old diesel-friendly rollers to the finish.
I’ll be coming off 12 weeks of Sweet Spot base leading into this…
Knowing that I had just wrapped up 12 weeks of Sweet Spot Base, what are we doing for subsequent workouts/rides in the two weeks leading up?
I’m thinking a race-simulation effort 2 weeks prior is a good idea. The week prior will a taper with one some intensity early in the week.
