I'm with Greg Lemond on this one: short intervals are early in the training week.
One note though, your FTP is low, is that your race limiter? If you're losing races because you never get the opportunity to unleash a final sprint, then there's really no reason to train the sprint. Last year I gave up 1' intervals and sprints completely for ~6 months, and focused on VO2Max and FTP. That worked out really well for me. I was able to hit SST 5 days in a row, without building up too much fatigue, so all 5 were great workouts. FTP climbed quickly.
