Block Training - How does it work?

I often stress this - consistency is the bedrock of fitness and training. However, every multi-day bicycle tour makes me a stronger and better rider by the end of the tour. This happens although consecutive days of riding increases the short-term fatigue significantly. So, is this right? Should we do such an occasional short patch of near full day riding? Isn’t a regular consistent riding better?

Should I train heavy?

What is train heavy? It is a practice where you use heavier equipment during training and switch over to lighter and more efficient equipment closer to important events. Like several other things, this is an approach that is easy to preach and tough to practise.

Q&A With Prajwal Pingali, Winner, BBCh U-18 XCO

"The climbs were steep and really bumpy, I almost wanted to stop beside the trail and rest mid-race due to the pain. The descends were just as bumpy as they were on slick road slabs. There were points at which I couldn't process the speed at which I was moving."
