Is It Possible To Train Like A Tour de France Pro Cyclist Around A 9-5 Job?

Close ×

Professional cyclists competing in the Tour de France train a LOT. They ride their bikes and workout in the gym sometimes in excess of 30 hours a week, and then they focus on recovery and nutrition. We wanted to know whether it was possible to maintain the same training demands as a pro, whilst holding down a full time job, so Hank stepped up to tackle the training program with his regular 9-5 here at GCN.
