At some point in every cyclist's life, they will sprint. Maybe that’s because they’re being chased by a stray dog, they want to beat their mates to the cafe or they want to win a race. In this video, Chris and Si run you through three key aspects of training this skill.

Now we have the perfect road we want to make sure we are both mentally and physically prepared for the efforts, you’ll want to adjust your shoes as tight as is bearable, and find a good strong grip in the bottom hooks of your bars. Step two: sprinting technique. We’re going to target the fast high revving sprints of around 15 seconds, this is slightly longer than the bodies energy system wants to maintain a sprint, but not long enough to turn into an anaerobic effort. Step three: fine tuning. To take these efforts to the next level, you can pay attention to a few extra details within the session. You can pick an imaginary finish line or sprint between two distinct markers on the road. By doing this you’ll start to learn how far you can sprint before fading, and when you should really start to sprint maximally in a competitive environment.
