You get key rides to ensure you are capable across every aspect of cycling; nutrition, hydration, technique, tactics and of course performance. Truly personal coaching without the expense of working with a coach 1:1.
95% of the sessions you will do come with comprehensive instructions, links to videos, blogs or downloads, plus they have the workout builder function and can be directly uploaded to Garmin too complete!
Technique will also play a massive part. If possible join a local Go-Ride club skills session or check out your local race venue to see if they have any. If you can get a friend to video you then you can analyse technique such as sprinting and group riding later.
