Fuel for Focus

This ride can be a stand-alone profile or use it to capture a baseline performance for the 6:00 best effort and the 4:00 HIIT effort and train from there.

We’re using this profile to have riders capture their 6:00 and 4:00 efforts, then focus for one month (two classes per week) on what affects performance: form, pedal stroke, mental focus, mental tenacity, physical stamina. At the end of the month, we’ll reuse this profile with a different playlist to have riders measure results. What were the changes? What did they learn about themselves? What do they need to train going forward?

    Do you allow people to come up out of saddle for 6:00 effort?

      Hi Nichole!

      Sure, riders are welcome to come out of the saddle if they choose. However, I would remind everyone that we can work much more efficiently seated. Standing efforts expend a lot more energy, so use standing wisely, like at the very end in order to stay strong throughout the effort. Ultimately, it’s for them to express how fresh, how steady, how strong and how much they know about riding a personal best peak performance at this moment in their training.
