Spring Classics - How Winning Is Done

Spring is upon us and cycling fans will be all over the news updates about the professional cycling calender's 'Spring Classics' - one-day bike races that often take place in volatile spring weather. Combine nasty riding conditions (dust, wind, mud, rain), tough terrain (short, rolling hills, the ubiquitous cobblestones), and massive distances (upwards of 200km) and you get a special breed of cycle races that can be won only by a special breed of cyclists.

You dread it. Yet, you know you need to do it. To see where you stand in terms of fitness, the Functional Threshold Power (FTP) Test is the benchmark fitness test we use to gauge your fitness. From your final result, all workouts are scaled, typically as a percentage of your FTP value - measured in watts.
