blog-training-alps

The Goalspecific Alpe D’Huez Triathlon Training week is offered to triathletes who are looking for an intense training week with high level technical coaching in an amazing mountainous environment, which will involve riding some of the great iconic alpine cols, including the 21 bends of Alpe D’Huez. Due to the nature of the specific coaching, we have only 12 places available which will be distributed on a first come first served basis.

All coaching is provided by qualified triathlon coaches, including Fran Bungay (BTF level 3 triathlon coach and coach tutor).

You will receive an athlete’s questionnaire once you have booked your place. Please complete it in as much detail as possible so we can get a picture of your fitness, goals, and individual objectives of what you would like to achieve from the week.

We can also discuss your own goals, your available training time and how you can plan your training smartly, and periodize your training blocks to peek for your race goals. If you would subsequently like a more specific training programme, Fran can spend time on a one to one basis with you, so we can build your profile and work towards developing a training programme that fits around work, family and other commitments.
