There are various things that racing beginners should know to get started. Some of these pieces of advice include avoiding passing, selecting a course with ample "run-off," and learning how to brake properly. Here are a few recommendations from Aaptiv trainers for race day.

One of the essential pieces of racing advice is to avoid flooring the accelerator when exiting a curve. Instead, you should ease off the gas before entering the curve, coast into the turn's apex, and then accelerate gradually out of turn. This will prevent you from losing traction and permit other drivers to pass on the inside.

To avoid losing control and producing wheelspin, developing your braking skills for corners is vital. Braking, in turn, begins with a sense of how hard to apply the brakes. Once you've accomplished this, you can adjust your brakes to a medium setting or even turn them off.

Mastering the fundamentals of braking is an essential ability for novice racers. However, the top drivers can brake with the least force possible. In addition, stopping at the correct reference point is an art, and the finest drivers will employ this approach extensively.

One of the most crucial components of racing is avoiding overtaking. It requires accurately estimating your opponents' speed and reacting accordingly. It also involves studying the various driving styles of your competitors. Avoid attempting to pass another vehicle if you are a novice racer and do not know what the other vehicle is doing.

One of the simplest ways to pass a quicker vehicle is to go to its right or left side. Simply signal this to the opposing driver. However, be aware that the quicker vehicle may not be as fast as you and may have to slow down to allow you to pass. This is potentially hazardous for you and your opponents. Moving in the braking zone is also dangerous since it will result in an accident.

The objective of a stage race is to reach the sweet spot inside a stage. However, the optimal position differs with race. For instance, the optimal stage length for an endurance race may be between three and five days. A stage race may have a high threshold, but a sprint race has a lower sweet spot.

A conventional training regimen would involve riding between 50 and 70% FTP. The objective is to increase aerobic capacity while avoiding threshold development. Recovery rides are those that fall below that threshold. In contrast, rides exceeding 75% of FTP are long-repeated efforts and tempo rides. Between eighty-six and ninety-seven percent of FTP is optimal for a race.

Training for the sweet spot of a race can be challenging, but it can help novices develop a stronger aerobic engine. In addition to sweet spot intervals, training for race-specific efforts should include sprints, attacks, and VO2 max work that represent the demands of the race. Training in the sweet zone is significantly more successful than other training methods.
