**This training plan is extremely intensive, and is not for beginners or those who only ride low intensity/endurance. Before starting this, or any exercise program, consult your physician.**
We start our Intermediate Ride along with a Field test, which allows us to find our CURRENT Functional Threshold number, which will allow for the next month of riding, to be right on target.
Push hard, as we want to try to take the "Yellow Jersey" with our best ever Time Trial Effort!
Fast and Furious today with the intermediate sprint, and a nice little pair of climbs!
Today we want to cover any early attacks, allowing us to be in position to take the sprint points.
Make sure to eat after the intermediate sprint, as we have a few hard climbs in the second half of todays stage.
Be smart, be only as active as you need to be, but stay close enough to the front to matter.
Tomorrow is a rest day!
Todays Stage we want to keep the Green Jersey you have brought back, so be ready to work for great position as we lost in to the intermediate sprint!
Make sure you're eating immediately after you keep the Green Jersey, as the sprint is right at the base of the first climb of the day.
The stage finished off with two climb- the second a Cat 1 up to the finish.
Todays stage features rolling terrain with a few little climb.
We'll doing Tempo efforts with Short Sprints within, as well as a few Sprints from low speed.
With the Green Jersey on your back, you want to keep it at least one last day, before we hit the Mountains.
We work hard to get you off the front up the climb before the sprint, with a few hard kickers before the category climb for the day begin.
Ride smart, as well will be pushing hard to get you to the top of each mountain with he lead group!
Todays Stage will certainly bring out the big hitters, as 3 (THREE!!) HC Climbs are featured in todays stage.
Make sure you eat after each of the big efforts in the ride, as you can't afford to bonk on this one!
