Thursday however was an important day with both of us doing FTP tests on the Col du Rates climb to determine our zones for the next block of training, we were both happy with the result putting us ahead in condition for the same point last year. We have both been training with power all winter which has drastically altered the training and overall content of what we have been doing.
We are heading back to the UK a bit reluctantly on Sunday for some recovery time, before some more training in England before the first race of the season, the North East Trophy on 22nd February. After that we head to Mallorca for a week of training with a number of riders from the team before the season starts in earnest.
P.S both the shoe game and cafe have been incredible all week. (See images)
