Third de France - Stage 6

Pros: Brest to Mûr de Bretagne, 181km, Hilly

Me: 60km incl. 3x5m SST, 5m RI (rest interval), 2 uphill sprints to finish

SST means riding at a consistent pace with no interruptions, so pretty hard to do on the open road. The Murrarie crit track is just up the road from me, so that’s a good place for intervals. It’s a 1.4km loop but the going around in circles isn’t an issue as I’m focussing on my power output and making sure I’m hitting the required numbers.

3x5min was a gentle introduction before the real "mountains" next week.
