Typical (hard) city riding: lots of coasting, lots of stopping and starting, lots of hard start intervals, lots of mental stress, need to start hard to keep up with traffic then brake hard at stop signs/lights.
To ‘train’ for this type of riding, I think the crit specialization is my best bet. Am I correct? (But I am afraid that I just need to raise my power curve all around and maybe I should think about specializing later, after I build some general power…)
I can’t decide if I should just do base/build (general power build) a few times to get stronger, then do a specialization, or just do base/build/specialty. I’m just below 3 watt/kg.
Oh well, I’d be appreciative of any thoughts about how I should proceed…
Here is what this sort of riding looks like:
