How a TT should be ridden

Postby foo on patrol » Sat Jul 24, 2010 5:43 pm

I head an interesting quote on the TDF last nigh!!
I think it was from Schlecks or Contadors' father. Your legs should be jelly, if you have ridden a time trial to your best!
In other words, you should not be able to stand for at least 5mins.
This has always, been my line of thought!!!You should be putting everything into it, if it is a final or equivalent to a final, because you will only know then, what is required for a 100% effort. :idea:

Ps. This is differrent to a Tri event.
I don't suffer fools easily and so long as you have done your best,you should have no regrets.

Not really. In tri, you should melt to the ground at the finish line too. :mrgreen:

There's only one finish line for the whole race I trust. :wink:

Yes, that was the reason for my statement! No good burning yourself out, in one stage, to only burn out,in the final run!
For a Tri, you would need to know your strongest leg then, capitalise on it, to your benefit then, work on your weakness! :idea:

the key it to be consistant, same cadence and same HR all the way, but try to finish a bit harder, you should not be able to sprint at the end.

therefore doing latic threshold training is good
when do we stop for coffee???

TT, yep I agree put it all out there, make the legs jelly, break the heart, gasp for air. TTing is all about suffering in my opinion.
Keep flexing, spinning, rolling, coasting, pushing, pulling, drafting, sprinting, time trialling, touring, climbing, descending, hot dogging, crit-ing, racing, weaving, dodging, dropping, tanking, chasing... but most of all - just keep f'ing riding!
