Back to Back Wins for Dave Ryding in Weissbriach

The victories in Slalom held in the Austrian resort of Weissbriach come as Dave's first FIS race wins in Austria, scoring 14.02 FIS points in the process. It was a real bounce back from Dave's self-proclaimed 'bad day' in Zell am See. The next few weeks see a gap in the calendar for the Europa Cup Slalom circuit, so Dave will be continuing to chase FIS races in a bid to lower his points.

Slalom and GS Training �tall Glacier, Austria

At the moment I am in Austria on the Moltall Glacier training slalom and GS, conditions the day before we arrived were perfect, however I brought the fog, wind, snow and lots of it! So the conditions are very challenging but if it was a race we would have to ski in it so we train in it, and can prove vital training for when you are put in a similar situation in a race.
Fitness Training 2010

Over the summer we have 3 fitness tests to monitor how we are progressing. We do a bike test to test lactic levels at certain intensities on the bike, a squat test an over head squat test, stability tests and jump tests, all measuring different fitness aspects and all showing data on those areas.

My tests went really well and I have shown significant gains in all areas on this time last year especially in the strength tests, squatting 165kg and 110kg over head!
Summer Training 2010

Started at the end of April, with the etape Caledonia charity bike race in mind, I started my training solely focused on the aerobic aspect of training so biking was a daily thing, with rides up to 3 hours long. On the 16th May the Team tackled the race and I managed to finish 2nd overall .30 seconds of winning out of 3000 people so a solid effort. Following this with a very good aerobic base I started to train in the gym 3 times a week (much more means you cant recover in time for the next session) as well as keeping up the cycling however the rides no longer than 1hour 30 at a mixture of intensities.

The weeks vary on intensity depending what stage of training we are at and if we are about to go skiing, so for example if we have a four week block of training we will have 2 very hard weeks in the middle and then go a little easier for the week before we go away as not to be tired for training on the snow, as at the end of the day we have to progress in skiing as our main priority! I managed to get a holiday fitted in my summer and that was a great break to recharge the batteries and come back ready to train hard again, because I must say it can start to feel like ground hog day getting up every morning, going in the gym having lunch then going on the bike then dinner and then you are so tired you just want to get to bed!

Ski training has seen us stay in Europe this year and I must say I prefer this, trekking to chile or New Zealand takes its toll on the body. We started in Kaunertal and then went to Zermatt, Saas Fee and Pitztal.
