We asked elite triathlete Lucy Charles for her essential cycling training tips. In this one she focusses on how to maximise your performance.

– Nutrition is key – and unique to you. Try something, see if it works, and stick to it if it does
– Aim for 60-90g of carbs per hour during a ride
– Use caffeine alongside that if necessary to keep you in your optimum performance window
-During a training ride, repeatedly tackle a small loop to optimise your cornering technique

Check back every day for more videos from Lucy to improve your swimming, running, cycling and mental approach to sport and fitness.
