Anyone got any idea which is best for the most efficient race pace over rolling hills or when cresting a climb onto a flat road. Assuming that you are climbing flat out, with a high heart rate and building up lactic acid, is it better to take a break and soft peddle to lower the heart rate quickly and then ride at a normal intensity. Or to keep riding hard and gradualy lower the heart rate to your normal flat road intensity. I am thinking that taking a quick breather allows a faster recovery and better overall pace
really depends on what the rest of the pack is doing.
if everyone is going should too.
if everyone is slowing....take a break...or a good time to attack.
