Spinning Race Attacks

This is a Cycling pattern from www.turnstep.com. (pattern 12620)

I just tried this alternative to a sprint...with a great response. At the beginning of class I announced that I had good news and great news for them. The good news was that they have been entered in a race and the great news was that it was a relay race and we were team two. Team one has done a great job opening up a large lead for us so we can have our regular ride and "probably" be the first team to cross the finish line.......however, there is always a possibility that one or more of our opponents will try to overtake us and if that happens, we must increase the resistance, maintaining our cadence to increase our speed (which will take about 20 seconds).

Naturally, because I am facing the rear, I will warn the class if somebody is trying to overtake us by calling out "ATTACK", as the warning to pick up speed by adding resistance. This may happen a few times class but always after adequate warm-up and followed with recovery.

Let me know how it works for you!

Jeff
