I’m entered in my first Stage Race this weekend in Steamboat, CO to help out our team for Colorado Cup points. The race consists of a Time Trial, Road Race, and Crit in that order. I have never competed in a Time Trial before, and I’m not certain what power to target for the 22 km distance. The course is full of small rises, and a couple of longer climbs that only amount to a few hundred feet total.
Should I target 115% of my FTP, more or less?
