Jack and Joe have been diligently following their training plans for the last few weeks and, remarkably, Jack has managed to stick to his. The efforts are paying off and the slightest hint of form is creeping into his winter-weary legs.
This led the pair to wonder whether Jack — a full-time on-bike excuse-maker — could finally drop Joe, a dedicated and well-trained amateur racer.
As of writing, Jack and Joe’s training has now come to an end and their retesting date is looming. Will they see an improvement to their fitness and, if so, how much of an improvement? Are there any other daft challenges you’d like the pair to try? Leave your thoughts below!
Jack has been riding and fettling bikes for his whole life. Always in search of the hippest new niche in cycling, Jack is a self-confessed gravel dork and thinks nothing of bivouacking on a beach after work. Also fond of his tandem, Cecil, cup and cone bearings, skids and tan wall tyres.
