Richard P – in his 60’s wanted to complete the Etap du Tour after 2 previous failed attempts

Richard came to me to get some guidance.  I did not do anything like as much as I wanted to do with him.  But we looked at his riding position and corrected the posture and worked out a sustainable training regime that would fit in with his life in order to get him to his goal of completing the Etap du TOur in France.  He attempted a few times before and not made it so this was a psychological battle as well as a fitness challenge due to his work constraints.

Emma – Many thanks – made it! Thanks in no small part to your excellent programme and cajoling. Hugely appreciated. Col de Joux Plane 11.9km at 9% was a struggle at the end of the day. The 3 of us 60yr olds were all between 7.5 and 8hrs and everyone got around safely on a hot day. Now to think of the next challenge!
