Former 2nd cat roadman, Peter is achieving great performances for Eastbourne Rovers despite having a challenging job.
• Peter has been riding for six years and initially raced a lot of road bunched events gaining his 2nd category licence.
• A bad crash followed by a stolen bike meant he was forced to have six months away from cycling.
• Once Peter was back on a bike, he decided to focus on time trialling, particularly endurance events.
• After two years racing long distance TTs, Peter’s performances had started plateauing so he wanted a new coach to take a fresh look at his training and performance.
• Running a self-employed business means a lot of his time is taken up leaving small opportunities available to train.
• Being a specialist tiler means he has a very manual and physical job resulting in training sessions being undertaken with residual tiredness.
• It can be hard to approach training sessions and races with the right mental attitude after a hard week at work.
• Focused on Peter’s long distance race goals by working on base endurance with integrated Z2-4 intervals. These were kept interesting by variables of time, interval type and terrain.
• Built in above threshold intervals to ‘pull up’ Peter’s FTP – this is beneficial to endurance racers to widen the work ‘range’.
• Worked on Peter’s TT bike position to ensure optimum bio-mechanical and aerodynamic efficiencies, so no energy was wasted on the longer races.
• Planned pacing and fuelling strategies based on the race course and distances.
• Over 7% improvement in 50 mile TT time.
• 5% improvement in 12 hour TT distance.
• 11% improvement in 50 mile TT power.
• 15 watt increase in 25 mile TT power.
• Currently lying in the top ten of the BBAR.
