TNT Sept 20

please note that we will start the warm-up at 6:15pm
therefore, sign-in before 6:15pm
warm-up is a “progressive exercise, building from 18mph to 23+mph over six laps. Smooth rotating paceline, okay to sit on.
6:30pm – two techinique sprints “perfect practice makes perfect”

**main workout**

split into two groups – one will avg about 23mph over six laps; the other group will avg about 20mph
six laps “tempo” where everyone contributes and no one attacks + two laps “attack or be attacked” (no tempo riding – no sitting at the front) for a total of eight laps
one lap cool-down
six laps “tempo” + two laps “attack or be attacked” = 8 laps
one lap cool-down
six laps “tempo” + two laps “attack or be attacked” = 8 laps

main cool-down (small ring rotating paceline) from 18mph to 15mph – shake it out!

TNT Sept 13

Team Fremont – here’s the plan for Thursday, Sept. 13

6:15 – **NEW** warm-up time – six laps progressively building to a “burn-out” pace (not the 1st lap attacks)
6:30 – two technique sprints
- followed by 12 long sprints (T2 to T3, and T4 to Finish, 2 sprints every lap for six laps)
- obstacle course – because Thomas asked for it
- “drop and give me ten” – Tempo riding for the pack, when you feel up to it you drop off the back and give ten seconds gap then sprint back to the pack. Ideally you don’t make it every time you try.
- cool down by 8pm
