HOLIDAYS ARE GONE. HOW LONG TO BE BACK IN SHAPE?

HOLIDAYS ARE GONE. HOW LONG TO BE BACK IN SHAPE?

The end of autumn is here and for the cycling pros it’s time to plan the next season. Let’s start, with a mix of enthusiasm and programs. The target is to improve the fitness in the right way, without rushing. The first question could be: how long does it take to be back in shape? We can find an answer with Davide Martinelli, who started his workouts a few days ago. We should distinguish between the ones directly aiming at the fitness peak, and the ones who are planning for a target later in the season. I think that to be fast in Australia you need to do the first seasonal races […]

VACANZE TERMINATE. QUANTO CI VUOLE A TORNARE IN FORMA?

VACANZE TERMINATE. QUANTO CI VUOLE A TORNARE IN FORMA?

Siamo a fine autunno e per i professionisti del pedale è tempo di tornare a pensare alla prossima stagione agonistica. Si riparte, tra entusiasmo e programmazione. L’obiettivo è quello di entrare in forma nel modo corretto, senza bruciare i tempi. La prima cosa che ci si potrebbe chiedere è Quanto tempo ci vuole per tornare in forma? Per dare una risposta a questa domanda ci viene incontro Davide Martinelli, che proprio da pochissimi giorni ha ripreso ad allenarsi. Bisogna fare una distinzione tra chi va subito in cerca del picco di forma e quelli che hanno degli obiettivi più avanti nella stagione. Credo che per andare forte in Australia, alle […]

A DREAM DAY

A DREAM DAY

I am Michela, a triathlete for passion … but with cycling in my blood. I had the opportunity to take part to a riding day with a pro World Tour racer to test the new SportPlusHealth platform. For me this was like a dream coming true. Do you want to know what emotions I have felt? Here’s my story … of a special day. “Well, when they asked me: do you want to ride with Davide Martinelli? The answer was just one: sure yes!!! But let’s hope that he will wait for me!! How to say no to a ride with a pro cyclist in the wonderful scenery of Livigno, […]

Opening the way? With high Watts. Words of a coach.

Opening the way? With high Watts. Words of a coach.

The analysis by coach Paolo Marchetti. Analyzing the file from Davide Martinelli, regarding the 6th stage of the Tour of Guangxi, the last event of the season, we see a 168 km track at an average speed of 44 kmh. A very fast stage with an high cadence even if this is the last seasonal effort. The total distance has been covered in 3 hours and 47 minutes. In the last part of the stage we can see a number of fast rythm variations, very complex to manage. These continued until the moment when our athlete took the control of the race with a progression of more than 1100 Watt which hits the group and allows […]
