Competitive cycling is about having a strong tactical sense, or “race smarts.” Thomas Prehn helps cyclists avoid common race mistakes and ride strategically. Useful topics include: "reading" a race to anticipate the outcome, criterium and stage race tactics, when to attack and when to lay back, pace lines, echelons, blocking, and breakaways, and how to stay informed during a race and deal with disasters. Prehn supplements his advice with anecdotes and memorable race moments, as well as instructional diagrams throughout the book.
