Dan was lucky enough to ride with Movistar's Mikel Landa whilst in Spain. They discussed climbing in and out the saddle, hand positioning on the bars and whether Mikel looks at his power meter during a race. Mikel further talks of his favourite training sessions for climbing and if he prefers to train alone or with fellow riders.

Dan even challenges Mikel to a street sign sprint, watch the video to find out who wins! 👀
