When would you plan to travel there?? ie. how many days do you generally plan to acclimate for a destination race? Coming from Canada/USA to Europe? Go over Wednesday/arrive Thursday for a Sunday race? Thanks!
i always figured a day to acclimate for every hour of time change. but i'm no expert, and i don't know that one needs to acclimate to the time change in order to race. the shorter the race, the less hinky i am about that stuff. i'm 8 hours time difference from nice. i wouldn't go 8 days in advance just to acclimate. maybe 5. or 4. mostly i want enough time to get my bearings, put my bike together, ride it a couple of times, get myself situated, register, prepare the bike for the race, figure out the course. that's probably at least 4 days. so, i would guess i'd get there 5 days in front and just due with a little sleep deprivation.
