    I am on the Level 2 plan training for Ironman Vichy in August. It said the bike course was hilly, but it seems more Tour de Francey with 7500ft of elevation gain. This will be the steepest race that I have completed; is there anything differently I should do in the plan to prepare for such a bike challenge?



    not answering your actual question but I wonder, considering the elevation gain, are you using your TT bike or will you switch to a climbing road bike for this specific event?

    I’m in uncharted territory so I guess I’m not really sure…open to suggestions. My road bike is a Cannondale Gravel bike.

    Thanks Matt, I will check it out.
