BIKE

Macky Franklin rides the Ultegra LR Power, Dash and SB20 Smart Bike.

WHAT'S ON MACKY'S DASH: For downhill days and unstructured rides I have one screen for duration, distance and time of day, another with altitude, total ascent, total descent and temperature, and a final one with max, average and current speed.

 

For intervals I have one screen with lap time, power, heart rate and cadence, and another with ride time, distance and total ascent.

 

PROFILE

Favourite Workout?
Manual Intervals (made them up myself) – Choose a fairly long hill (3 or so minutes to climb). Climb it at climbing repeat pace (Zone 4). At the top, turn around and practice doing manuals on the way down. Not only do you get a good workout, but you get to practice your manuals and practice a difficult skill while you’re not totally recovered.

PRE-RACE RITUALS: Growing up in a large and punctually-impaired family, I learned that it was much better not to have a pre-race ritual, because then it didn’t matter when there wasn’t time for it to happen!

FAVOURITE THING ABOUT TRAINING: Finishing and feeling like you’ve accomplished something.

FAVOURITE THING ABOUT RACING:Testing myself against the best racers in the world.
