YEARS ON STAGES: 5
FAVORITE POWER WORKOUT: “Main set: 2 sets of 8-10x90sec@120-130% with 90sec rest and 10 min between sets.”
WHAT’S ON CAM’S DASH: “I keep it simple – 3s power, ride time, cadence. Just the basics. I let my coach be the geek, I just make sure I hit all the power numbers he tells me to.”
FAVORITE STAGES MOMENT: “I’ve been on Stages from the beginning. I remember the first time I got on the bike to ride it and it took me all of five minutes to go from the Stages in-the-box to the Stages on-my-bike and out on my ride. It was so simple and so easy to use. No fuss, so I can just get out there and train. Now with the Dash its so easy to just jump on a different bike and ride.”EXPLORE STAGES POWER LR FOR DURA-ACE 9100
