In De France Pro How To Climb Like A Tour

Two time stage winner Frank Schleck talks to the Telegraph about the training rides, nutritional boosts and mental tricks needed to conquer the biggest mountains in Europe as Tour de France enters the mountains.

If you are climbing like a pro start from full gas and speed up more and finish with the rest you have left. Don’t try to be a rock star and superhero as it is not going to happen. Listen to yourself and maintain your speed that how much speed you can carry. Frank Schleck rides up to 80-85 RPM and that is right speed. If you are an amateur rider then you will have the same feeling as a pro. Yes, you can say pro run faster, but amateur and pro body is pushed to the same limit. Pros have the same feeling as cycle tourist.
