TDF - Stage 3

Pros: Cholet to Cholet, 35.5km, Team Time Trial

Me: 4 x (1m Z5, 2m Low Z4)

When riding a Team Time Trial you end up riding above FTP (aka threshold) for a short time when you’re the guy on the front, and a bit longer under threshold when you’re drafting behind a team mate. The pros took about 38mins, so a third of that is 12-13 minutes for me. I’ll do a minute over threshold, followed by two minutes under and repeat 4 times for a total of 12mins.
