TRI247 Workout Series: Matt Bottrill's Sweetspot Attack
Group Workout
Every Wednesday at 7pm UK-time, TRI247 present a triathlon focused workout brought to you by a guest 'coach.' This will include sessions by pro triathletes, coaches and notable characters associated with the sport.

The workouts are about 60 minutes long and designed to add variety and interest to your weekly training schedule. We are very pleased to welcome back one of the best British Time Trial riders ever, and now a highly successful coach to many triathletes this week, Matt Bottrill, as this week’s ride leader.


“Power is nothing without control”, and while – all things being equal – being able to produce more power while cycling is a good thing, for triathlon and time trials especially, we need more than simply numbers. This session is designed to address that, with a focus within the main sets of developing your ability to ride in and maintain the aero / race position, while producing solid power numbers.

The four main sets – each of eight minutes – comprise of:
3 mins at sweetspot effort (87-93% FTP)
1 min at FTP effort
3 mins at sweetspot effort (87-93% FTP)
1 min at FTP effort
Each block is separated by a full five minutes of easy cycling, to allow you to focus on the main block and recover.

With much of the world in ‘lockdown’ right now due to the Coronavirus pandemic, join us online for an hour of quality indoor training – and banter too!
