Indoor Cycling Workout Videos - Muscle Breakdown The Gran Fondo Moab

Muscle Breakdown! Gran Fondo, Moab Utah

Living in Colorado has its perks. This is the Hollywood of cycling! I was sitting on pins and needles over the last few weeks as I was lining up an opportunity to work with the great up-and-comer of professional cycling, Danny Summerhill.
Well, guess what?
Danny joins Cycling Videos Online to add his insights, wisdom and adventures as a pro cyclist in the newest release, “Muscle Breakdown, The Gran Fondo Moab, Utah!”

With his teammates, Christian Vande Velde and Dave Zabriske, Danny raced against the elite of the elite:

Andy Schleck
Levi Leiphiemer
Cadel Evans
TeJay VanGarderen
George Hincapie and more
During the 2011 Tour of Utah and the 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge. Danny helped team Garmin-Cervelo to the overall best team at the USA Pro and helped catapult Christian Vande Velde to a second place finish overall. Danny took a 4th place finish at the closing stage in Denver Colorado and went over Independence Pass, stage 2 (12,095ft) ahead of Andy Schleck! Danny is a young rider, so, no doubt we’ll be seeing more of him to come.
Muscle Breakdown, Gran Fondo, Moab Utah has it all:

Brutal efforts
pelotons and pacelines
and truly magnificent scenery
Hosted by the world famous Poison Spider Bicycles in Moab Utah, this 4 hour adventure tours the stunning canyon lands of Moab in an exciting race paced bike ride. Danny joins us in adding an exclusive workout interview that we recorded while on our trainers for 3.5 hours. It was snowing outside, but, we were dripping with sweat on the inside. With Danny looking over my shoulder and at my Power Tap, I worked so hard, I had to fight off the cramps! I guess this is what I get for riding alongside with a pro :)
This ride will beat you up; but, I guarantee that you will want to finish the entire tour in one sitting; it’s that much fun!

Workout Notes

Danny Summerhill
(Fran- Mom)
The workout begins in Downtown Moab and the ride is slow for about 10min (warm-up) will use the opportunity to dial in the viewer to the training dash (quickly) Before the ride kicks in I want to introduce you.
Introduce yourself
Danny Summerhill
age, pro cyclist, team Garmin etc
Danny’s going to be riding with us and bustin’ butt during this 1st hour. Get ready for high intensities, fast cadences, bursts of power / accelerations.
The group up front wants to thin the field, we want to stay in the fray, we’re going to pay for it!
For the first hour I’ll be verbally cuing the changes in intensity and really focusing on the workout. I won’t be interviewing. Danny will follow the changes as best as possible (it’s up to you how hard you want to go).
As we’re hanging with the field feel free to comment on what you’re seeing. If this were a race, how would you be proceeding? Strategizing? How do you conserve power when it’s do or fall off? What might this ride remind you of? Stuff like that.
After about 1hr, the group turns and we begin our climb. We let the group go and attempt to find a rhythm (I’m no climber). Once we settle into a pace, the effort, cadence and resistance does not change too much and we can begin our conversation.
