Altitude will effect most of riders performance, that’s why we recommend to arrive few day earlier to acclimatize to the different conditions. If you wish to enjoy the week of racing from the very first day, you better allow time for your body to acclimatize at this high altitude for few days. There is no need to train hard, just tapering as you normally do before a race like this but doing it at the same altitude as the race course.
