Racing Cyclists

Which competitive cyclist doesn’t agonise about the optimum mix of effort, recovery, intensive effort and easy riding? It’s so hard to know what to do for the best, even if you’ve been cycling for a while and you’re already competing regularly. The fact of the matter is that the biggest determinant of performance for competitive cyclists is exactly that mix of training volume and training quality – arguably more important even than experience, equipment or tactics.

So how many racing cyclists are confident that they are getting the best out of themselves? Time constraints, work and family commitments have to be thrown into the equation and because these are different for everyone, no two cyclists’ training regimes will be the same. Cyclists also respond uniquely to any given training – one cyclist’s training would be too much for another whereas for a third cyclist it would not be enough. And what are the critical differences between the best training for different kinds of events?

But competitive cyclists don’t only benefit from help with training plans. Even enthusiastic racers can find their motivation flagging or their self-discipline going awry. It’s all too easy to lose perspective and struggle to see performances or results in a cool-headed, rational way. This is where it can be invaluable to bounce thoughts and ideas off a personal coach who knows you as a rider. Sometimes what is needed is an objective opinion from someone who has been through similar situations and who takes your racing as seriously as you do.
