I am in thEe fortunate position of flying to Majorca on 5th March for 7 days of riding. 4 days after i retun i then fly to Nice for 4 MORE days of riding. I KNOW! LUCKY ME
I amd 59y of age and 74 kilo’s and I am using the gran fondo plan to drag my fitness and endurance up so that hopefully my ftp will be around 250w and 3.4 w/k. 240ish on last half monty. Its a tough plan with 2-3.5 hours on the turbo every day and I started late so I wont actually finish it. I planned to ease off the week before i go, easy rides, primers the day before. I am being very careful about fueling and managing fatigue.
So, to the question.
I could start the Tour on the satuday and ride the stages to say tuesday and then ease off but i am worried about avccumlating and carrying fatigue into my trip. What say the hive mind and the Coaches?
