Pro cycling hours

Recommended Posts

No 3am starts for this guy but I think he might know a thing or two about endurance sport. Massive week on the bike for Richie.

Probably not going to help if if he can't stay up on 2 wheels. Hoping he has a better tour this season.

I read the total elevation and thought "why is he measuring in imperial not metric?"

Yeah, but Richie would probably die spending 40 hours a week on a shovel.

Wouldn't say it's colossal mileage for a pro rider

Really? What would be?

Given its him solo or with a few others of a weekend, it would be hard going.

If he was riding with his team daily with all the support then sure maybe it's an easier week for a pro.

Sweet. Bring on the criterium du dauphine, let's see what he has got.

After the Tour of California I was left with the impression he would be pushing it to be in peak for for the tour - but he looks like he is doing his best now that he is over illness.

40 hours. 

 

I know of one Australian triathlete who used to do 1000km a week riding. 

Where are they now?

I'd hate to be heading out for a "Pro-hours" ride today. It was much nicer at 5am. Four degrees cooler, but the winds were 40km/h lighter, and there were no 100km/h gusts to blow you off your bike.

I don't know if he's still having the problem, but there were quite a few rides being posted to his Strava that had really glitchy elevation. A few people picked up on it but he laughed it off and said that he was having dramas. A few of those every now and again would throw up some crazy vert numbers in a weekly summary.

Were these 1000k weeks on the bike for 2 or 3 weeks or for 6 plus months?

Yes he did. All in the high country. PHIL still gets out on the bike and totals an average of 600km (easy week) to 1000km a week when leading tours. Neil Stephens did similar summer efforts.
