Tapering for a stage race


#1

Next year my goal is to compete in all 11 days of ToAD(tour of americas dairyland). Currently I’m in the process of planning my training for next year. However I’m not sure if i should modify the taper for a multi day event like ToAD. Anyone have any experience with this? What would you recommend?

That’s a great question! Back when Jonathan, Nate, and Chad did the Singletack 6 stage race, they talked about different ways to taper in podcast episode 105.

Thanks! I didn’t realize they covered this in a podcast. Listening now!
