Interesting. Have you read Bradley Wiggins book? In the opening paras it details how he was planning to win the 2012 TDF in 2009 and how it was a swimming coach that was brought in to sort their training program, the first thing that the coach noted was that cyclists had an off-season in oct/nov and no one trained at that time, overthe 3 years this would give them a total of 27 extra training weeks if they were to work through this period
