One for the coaches here…
We all know the FF is a beast of session and takes time to master the pacing of the 5 and 20 minute segments but this is about the first 2 efforts, those pesky sprints!
In my last FF my NM went down, no problem, I’ve never really had that explosive power so I just put my head down and do what I can.
Today I had the pleasure of completing omnium and from one the standing starts I destroyed my NM power figure, I mean blew it away like it wasn’t there to begin with. I honestly don’t believe my NM has developed that much over the last 12 weeks though so my question is this:
Should sprints in FF be done from a standing or rolling start to achieve best results relative to the test?
I get that in the outside world sprints are from a rolling start and that from a standing start, that initial stamp on the pedals generates a whole of power but it got me thinking about it… once I had enough spare oxygen to go my brain anyway!
