Road cycling, and road racing, isn’t just about fitness – it’s also about your skills. Look at the best pros – especially the sprinters like Mark Cavendish and Peter Sagan – they are all highly skilled athletes and incredible at bike handling. (Also See: Cycling Made Easy: 4 Week Training Plans)
While you’re not going to be wheelie-ing like Sagan straight away, there are some more basic skills that it will help to know:
– Hopping up curbs
– Riding one handed
– The emergency stop
– Slow, tight corners
– Riding out of the saddle
