Tip: Sliding back

QuickTipsfeature1-300x92Not much of a climber or just find yourself facing the last climb of the day and praying for less vertical conditions? Try this in your next group ride or race. Slide back. To do this make sure you are at the front of the main group as you approach the climb. As you begin to fade just ever so slightly ease off your own pace and drift back to the back of the group. If you time this correctly you will catch on to the back of the pace line as the group crests the climb.
