This sessions aims to develop your ability to sprint at the end of a race / ride, helping you earn those bragging rights! To perform in a sprint, there is more to it than an almighty 10s burst of high power - it's also about your Lactate Tolerance, which this session will help develop.

By ramping up our power output pre sprint, it helps develop our Lactate Tolerance / ability to sustain high power, with lactate in our legs. When we come to the actual sprint, the sensations we feel are much more realistic compared with sprinting fresh! We rarely get to sprint totally fresh, so its worth replicating our 'real world' sprinting environment in training.


Matt Rowe - Heavily involved in cycling for the past 25 years, Matt represented Great Britain at the Junior World Championships before graduating to the pro ranks. Matt draws on his extensive race experience to help amateur cyclists around the world achieve their personal goals.


Zwifters line up in the starting area just like a normal event and once the event starts, workout mode begins. Everyone stays together regardless of power output. That's right, if you're outputting 100W and another Zwifter is outputting 400W you will stay in exactly the same position relative to each other. Only if you stop pedaling and fall 6 meters behind the group will the rubber-banding stop.

We highly recommend doing one of the FTP tests as the estimated FTP can be inaccurate and make the difficulty level of the workouts too high for your current fitness level. For more info on FTP go to: https://support.zwift.com/hc/en-us/arti ... d-in-Zwift
