  • Tuesday 6th October: Tempo Tuesday (6:30am) Watopia Mountain Route course (group workout)
  • Thursday 8th October: Team Italy Superveloce Race (6:55pm) see below for details
And here are the details of each session: 
  • Tempo Tuesday: A 45 minute no-drop group workout where the majority of the work is a tempo effort with the occasional splash of sweetspot or threshold work. We all do the same session (written by me), but we do it at our own intensities based on our functional threshold power (FTP), and by the magic of Zwift we all stay together. These sessions are great for boosting your FTP without destroying you, so you’re able to back up these sessions with your other planned sessions if you so wish, and also, they won’t be overly detrimental to your immune system. I will send out a separate email to the people who accept the invite for this ride as I need to send out the workout file and give instructions on downloading this file and how to join the meet up (it’s slightly different to joining a normal meet up).
  • Team Italy Superveloce Race:  A change to the usual program this week, we’ll be taking part in the Team Italy Superveloce Race. This is a race against other cyclists in your catergory and is a test of fitness and skill (drafting, use of power ups, etc). You have to sign up to the event on the Zwift Companion App or the Zwift website, and enter in a category that fits your current fitness level (based on your watts/kg). If you have any questions about the race or what category you should sign up as, please drop me an email. Here’s the link for signing up: LINK
