I think it is vital to set targets of athletic performance. Targets are set by you and what is achievable, faster, longer, stronger than where you are now, so my targets for 2018 are these
January - Ride Mt Tiede - do the double climb in one day, maybe the triple (7500M of climbing)
Easter - Tour of Flanders - for me the number one one day bike classic, ride the sportive the day before the pro’s complete in less than 8 hours - 220km long
June - Dragon Devil - as last season try and knock off 30-60 mins of this season’s time
July - Velothon - first time effort in wales, 100 miles, closed ride - under 5.5 hours
September - Revolve24 - 24hours around Brands Hatch
So what are yours, and before anyone says too early, well for those of us in the northern hemisphere this is our base period !
