TAILORED TO YOU
Breaking down the advice from three pro riders n e
There’s always a sense of curiosity when it comes to a pro cyclist’s training—what
intervals they do, how many hours
they ride, and at what intensity level.
Other than the sheer awe we experi-
ence upon finding out what allows
them to attain such a high level of
fitness, it can be hard to find ways
to apply what they’re doing to our
own training plan. As if the pros’
level of training isn’t far enough out
of reach, oftentimes so, too, is the
language they use to describe it.
In the hope of bridging the gap
between us and them, we asked
three professional riders—Ted
King, Jesse Anthony and Matthew
Busche—for details of their training.
Once we got it all down, we did our
best to adapt it to be relevant for
the majority of day-in and day-out
riders out there who can only dream
of having pro-level fitness.
