Is there ever a right time?

To develop and excel as a cyclist it takes time.  Early on we often see rapid changes in a rider’s performance, and then as the months and years pass the physiological changes continue, but often at a slower rate, especially in highly trained athletes.


It can take up to 10 years for a rider to develop fully, in the first 5 years we see predominantly physical development and the later 5 years cognitive development, so it’s never too late or too early to start.

The 2024 season in the northern hemisphere is now underway so the opportunity to be at your best for an event this summer are more limited, but with the correct plan, with the appropriate amount of loading and recovery, designed around your specific events requirements, improvements can be made.

If you have never been coached before or followed a plan tailored for you and your event needs, then there is no better time to start.  With continuity of training time, support from your coach, you will get so much more from your training and events.


What would Albert do!

The season for many has drawn to a close and now is a good time to reflect on the year, your successes, what you’re most proud of and where things didn’t go to plan, before the 2024 training begins 😊

Remember to reflect on what it was that contributed to those achievements, and to focus on those elements that you had complete control over.  Its not just your physical fitness and preparation that will have contributed, our mental state plays a big part in the way we perform.  I find writing them down helps me to identify what worked well and where I need greater development.

With these thoughts and notes I can structure my training correctly to take me into the 2024 season fitter, stronger, faster.

Albert Einstein quoted – Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

So what are you going to do differently moving forward, or are you going to let insanity rule!

Legato Race Team go Aero

Had a great day in Silverstone Windtunnel this weekend with team mates from Legato Racing Team perfecting our racing position ahead of the 2023 TT season.

We had the opportunity to test different skinsuits, helmets, bottles and wheels all under the watchful eye of Lee from Velo Atelier and Silverstone Sports Engineering technician.

Some gains made by all Legato RT riders and now 10 weeks of solid structured training in our new race positions, under the watchful eye of our coach, to optimise our performances out on the road.
