Vuelta a España Inside Line - Time Trial Warm Up With Italian TT Champion Marco Pinotti

Published on September 5th 2013


How does a time trial specialist prepare for a race? What warm up do they do in order to be as ready as they can for the individual time trial? We spoke to Italian national TT champion and Team BMC rider Marco Pinotti to find out. Follow GCN on YouTube: Warming up ahead of a time trial is very important to make sure a rider comes off the start at full speed and racing hard. The ITT at the 2013 Vuelta was a rather hilly course, and we asked Pinotti about his gearing selsection as well as the wheels he had chosen, bearing in mind the crosswinds on the course. Interestingly Pinotti's plan was riding the whole uphill section at his threshold, recovering on the downhill section before going all out on the flat last section. Music:
