Arrows

Here is a playlist I put together recently and posted on Spotify: Arrows. The photos below were taken while training in Girona over the last few weeks. I’ve completely recovered from the injuries I sustained in the Tour of Qatar and am now working to get back into shape. It feels great to be back on the bike, pushing over the climbs and sprinting for town signs. Recently, the intensity in my training has increased–I’m now doing  a lot of motor-pacing, threshold efforts in the hills and short intense efforts to simulate racing. I’ll return to racing at the Tour of Norway in mid-May and will then ride the Tour of Luxembourg and Tour de Suisse. My race schedule for the second half of the season has yet to be determined. [nggallery id=51]

Playlists

Many people have emailed me asking for music suggestions or the titles to the tracks I’ve used in the youtube videos. My team-mates and I will be posting playlists on Spotify. Here is the first: Shiftin’. I’ll update frequently and try to keep the tunes different and diverse. You can also follow Team Sky here: Team Sky–April Classics
