I already searched the existing topics but could not find an answer. I would like to know how much weight you gain during off-season and what is considered 《normal》? Also I would like to know when is the ideal time to lose the extra kilos, possibly April before getting back into intensity if July is your peak?
I know this is a difficult topic, especially for cyclists (who tend to be weight obsessed which sometimes even results in eating disorders, see recent GCN episode). I for example have gained 2 kg from last seasons race weight of 65 kg.
Look forward to your answers,
