Today's team session was based on teamwork on hill climbs and rolling hills. We set off up the hills in groups of 2 riders using slipstream techniques, in slipstreaming the lead rider pushes through the air ahead of them, helping the cyclists behind them by making less drag.
We also built up more experience on gear shifting when starting hill climbs. Preparing our gears for a hill to ascend or descend was key. We covered about 40km/24 miles with 430 metres/1400 feet of climbing. All riders did very well and team contribution was at its best, 2 new riders joined the team session and also gave 100% effort in the group.
