This kinda snuck up on me but in conjunction with the timing of the Amgen Tour of California TrainerRoad is running their 8 Days in California contest, it starts Saturday May 9th.
This year's course will keep you on your toes with four sprint stages, three climbing stages and one individual time trial, but remember that this is 8DC, so there will be no easy days.
- Stage 1: Sprint Stage
- Stage 2: Sprint Stage
- Stage 3: Climbing Stage
- Stage 4: Sprint Stage
- Stage 5: Climbing Stage
- Stage 6: Individual Time Trial
- Stage 7: Climbing Stage (Queen Stage)
- Stage 8: Sprint Stage
There is plenty more info available at their webpage
This will obviously take me off my training plan some but not too much, a couple of days are shorter than the plan and a couple are longer, I think I will net out with extra days through, which is the right way round!
