Just curious how many people if any use motor pacing as part of regular training program. By Motor pacing I'm refering to a friend on moped etc that is with you the whole ride not just trying to catch cars for a few meters.
If anybody does motor pace a few questions how many times per week, at what intensity or % of heart rate and any other benefits or non benefits associated with motor pacing.
any and all input is appreciated.
Thanks in advance

From Cyclingnews (October 2002):

"This is the real secret behind Cipollini. Three days of training, one day of rest. Always the same scenario: first one hour behind the car, then two hours in the Tuscan hills then another hour behind the car, and to close things off another hour behind the motorbike. Every time I did ten sprints during which I would come up from behind the motorbike."
