Last week I did seated starts in the 53x14 so this week I switched to the same workout in the 39x17. All efforts are about 20 seconds. Last week I topped out at 80-90rpm, this week 150-170. In both workouts the final 5 seconds are interminable. Both workouts are designed to get up to speed ASAP. The goal is to be able to comfortably match accelerations until the field fatigues and then attack off the front, or in the case of track enduro events, try to take a lap. I'm not a pure sprinter so I would prefer not to take my chances with bunch sprints.
