Stage 3: The Climbs – Race (C)

At dinner time I took part in the Tour of Watopia Stage 3 – The Climbs. This was a race on Zwift’s Volcano After Party circuit.

The one difference between this and previous SST sessions would be that for this ride I opted for the Medium length session, whereas typically I would go for the short … Read more Medium Sweet Sweet Spot Training
