Rest day at “Giro d’Italia”

Do you train or do you relax at the rest day?
Well Most of the “girini” (riders) are training between3 to 4 hours at steady pace, this is to do with keeping the routine of exercise, massage and sleeping. Many people feel that if do not your body the next day feels very bloated and therefore very hard at the start of the stage.

One of the myth is that very often riders that are up to the rest day doing very well they get worse after the rest day, (this are the one who need to train more), and the one which are not been doing great are improving considerably, body or mind?
