Competitive cycling is about having a strong tactical sense, or “race smarts.” Thomas Prehn helps cyclists avoid common race mistakes and ride strategically. Useful topics include:

  • “Reading” a race to anticipate the outcome
  • Criterium and stage race tactics
  • When to attack and when to lay back
  • Pace lines, echelons, blocking, and breakaways
  • How to stay informed during a race and deal with disasters

Prehn supplements his advice with anecdotes and memorable race moments, as well as instructional diagrams throughout the book.

Paperback with illustrations throughout.
