We cover topics such as using the wind direction to your advantage, working with your team mates to attack in sequence to soften up your rivals, and using momentum to improve your attack.
We also cover when to launch your attack, including using the terrain to improve your chances of success, wither because it's hard, or because you can sneak out of sight.
Put all these together and you'll be winning races solo before you know it.
The Global Cycling Network puts you in the centre of the action: from the iconic summit of the Stelvio to the epic trails of Fort William, Scotland, everywhere there is pavé or dirt, world-class racing, and pro riders, we will be there bringing you all the action, essential analysis and unparalleled access every week, every month, and every year.
