Cyclists of any age, experience, skill, and talent level can reach their full potential as both athlete and individual by training their bodies and minds for athletic competition. Ultrafit coach Thomas Chapple shows how with this practical guide. In keeping with the concept success is dependent upon the level to which cyclists build their foundation of aerobic fitness, or their “base,” for the street ahead, the book explains step by step the way to build a bigger aerobic engine, work as much as higher volumes, and make significant improvements in strength, endurance, and speed.
