FAVORITE PART ABOUT DASH: The best feature is the Power Zones Dashboard, because I use it for all of my races. My profile is set up for Power, HR, Pace and Distance
Because of my autism it can be difficult to judge pace. With the Dash head unit I am able ride in a Zone that allows my manage my rides or training sessions

FAVORITE POWER WORKOUT: Most my cycling takes place on the Stages SB20 on either, Zwift, Rouvy or FulGaz. I would say riding Alp De Zwift is my favourite power workout
FAVORITE CROSS TRAINING WORKOUT: I use an Indoor rower and my favourite is a 20km aerobic workout. I also do a lot of Plyometrics in the gym, box jumps are my favourite. For strength its got to be planks and the kettlebell
