06 Jul Tour de France Training Series | cycle training, performance training, indoor cycling, tour de france

This month we will be adding some new classes to train with the Tour de France.  A couple times a week we will be adding training stages in alignment with the routes. You will be required to take the free Matrix FTW before the class to determine your functional threshold wattage.  If you already know your FTP, we can make an exception. Sign up for the series here

Training Schedule:

Tuesday  July 7th at 6:30pm 

Features Stage 3 Mur de Huy.

This is a threshold/Race Day Class that is 60 minutes.

Features Stage 6 Abbeville/Le Havre.

This ride is a HIT, windy conditions simulation.  This route is known for gusts of wind and can change the leaderboard.  There are a few small climbs in the route but the crosswinds and head winds are what make this stage interesting.
