Climbing, handling, sprinting, attacking recovery all good.
I'm falling down seriously on the long high speed flats. In my last two road races I've eventually gone off the back, I should say that a handful of Elites and 1st were pulling it along, but I know I can't make the jump to the next level without improving here.
What I'd like to know is, do you think this could be sorted with further weight loss, weights and heavier resistance training on the Turbos? Rather than working on the road anymore than I do already. After all these moments when I go off the back are usually only maintained for a few minutes.
I do max HR sessions already, but I wonder if should worry less about HR and work on strength?
Right now I'm thinking about making the step up, which would require a lot of extra hard work. Or staying where I am, pretty good in regional LVRC.
Also I'm on my feet all day for about 9-10 hours
