MANY OF THE CY­CLISTS Pete Mor­ris races against don’t even know his real name. Ev­ery­one, even race an­nounc­ers, refers to the mus­cu­lar, flow­ing-haired rider as Thor, God of Thun­der. “It has its pluses and mi­nuses,” Mor­ris says. “Ev­ery­one cheers for you, but you’re known as a myth­i­cal fig­ure in­stead of who you re­ally are.” Turns out Mor­ris is also a sports nu­tri­tion­ist and cy­cling coach – and a big be­liever in strength train­ing. “It will give you greater longevity in the sport,” he says. To boost your mo­bil­ity, which is es­sen­tial to power on the bike, Mor­ris rec­om­mends full-body ex­er­cises like the Wall Ball (op­po­site). Work the move into your rou­tine – at least four hours be­fore you ride, if pos­si­ble, for max­i­mum ben­e­fit – and get ready to pedal longer and more pow­er­fully than ever be­fore. Bonus: it also makes work­ing in the gar­den eas­ier.
