5. Train specifically.

Weiss recommends that age groupers looking to improve cycling performance “get in the race position on the triathlon bars and do pacing efforts. You really have to know what you’re able to ride in the race. Some age groupers cannot tell you what they will ride. You should be able to calculate the bike leg and say, okay, that’s my goal watts or my speed. It should be a controlled thing and practice that in training with 3×20 minute and 3×30 minute efforts.
