I work with this young guy (early 20's) who just got his cat 5 license. He's totally gung-ho and trains like crazy. He's piling on the miles, doing long 80-90 mile rides and attacks the hills. I told him to be careful not to overtrain but he (predictably) brushed my advice aside. Here in new England the big races are in June and July. My guess is he'll be a burnt-out shell by May. What do you think?
