BJL Coaching Athlete Gili T. recently traveled to Israel to participate in a 200km ride starting in the afternoon and rolling through the night. The course was mostly on gravel and dirt roads, and Gili had a great ride as you can read below. Goes to show you what you can accomplish with 6-8 hours of training per week, when that training is focused and purposeful. These types of e-mails and phone calls can make a coach grin from ear to ear! Nice work, Gili!
"Hi coach from the holy land and 70th degrees.
I had a blast ride: total 11h ride time and total of close to 200km (from thursday at 1pm to Friday at 5am)with 3 stops, one for 30 min and two of one hour long each.
Mostly flat ride on mostly gravel / dirt road. I did it effortlessly keeping max z2 and even at this had to wait for the rest. Only another guy finished the whole course but i had to wait for him to a point that I could have shaved an hour at least.
Salsa spearfish turned to be a hack of a bike!!
Fast, convenience, superb geometry and handling.
Want to thank you for a good training year with many milestones and achievements.
