Intense Training

We will do the last 50 km of the 12th stage of the Tour de France 2006 finishing in the medieval village of Carcassone, in Aude, declared a world heritage by UNESCO in 1997.
A last valley, an “eat and drink” as cyclists like to say.
A transfer stage, with a course ideal for the spurts of those out to win stages.
The bravest, copying the actions of Popovich, winner of the stage, and his companions Ballan, Freire and Le Mevel, can simulate the sprint from afar and look for a “virtual” stage win.
There’s not much lowland, but also no impossible climbs.
The average slope of the course is around 3% with a maximum slope of 8% for a brief stretch.
We have to keep alert and continue our action to make it as effective as possible in the continuous ups and downs and the typical côtes of the French landscape.
