UCI Amateur World Cycling Tour

Charly GaulGaby and I have just signed up to race in a 3 day event in the Trento Region of Italy. It will involve an individual Time Trial and 140km (4000m vertical) road race.

If we finish in the top 25% of the field, we are then eligible to race in the UCI World Cycling Championship, competing against the best in the world inĀ Ljubljana, Slovenia around a month later, and just after we finish the Transcontinental Race to Istanbul.

This is a really exciting prospect for us, finding out how we stack up against the best amateur racers in the world.

Any tips, or advice would be most appreciated on how to maintain our level over the next 2 months as well as any tactics (apart from pedal fast).
