Yes. Gear's going to depend on the roller's size, but go as hard as you can maintain for those rollers. Keep doing that, roller after roller. Don't let off the power between. Accelerate down the face, spin it up, then gradually downshift on the next one. Maybe one seated, one standing, or your preference. Some like climbing up, some seated. The idea is to accumulate time at intensity without fully recovering between. IOW, TT the course. It might be interesting to vary the length of the routes, some 20 some 40 some 60 miles. Slightly different intensity levels.
Results matter
