I have been doing well in training and am excited to race. This last week I have been reading and hearing all kinds of advice on how to handle the hills at LP. I enjoy hills and am a strong climber. My plan (Level 2) is to stay around the top end of zone 2 on the bike. Depending on the hill it sometimes feels more comfortable to creep higher in watts on ascent, in contrast on downhills it can be difficult to reach my goal.
