Tour de Maurice 2016

Its that time again to jet set off to Mauritius and race around the windy island.
Last year I really felt I could’ve made more of an impression on the race, Being caught out to many times cost me precious time. So lets reboot and give it a go.

Heres a look back on stage 1 2015.

Tour build up and training.

Since the Kynsna Cycle Tour I’ve been doing core work and loads of roller sessions while the Cape of Storms lives up to its name you’re pretty much stuck in doors. Heres a typical “Maintain session”

Winter training sucks, but with the right tools you can make it fun and focus on the end goal. The graph below shows a typical morning session of speed work, build up and two sets of 20min. I’m using rollers so the watts don’t go up but your HR sky rockets.

Roller, tacx

Weekends are always fun with some long rides with mates but not easy coffee rides we attack each other simulating racing watching the numbers from my Stages Power meter and Garmin I can see if my form is on track.
