Long-term endurance III (90 min-6 hr) Long-term endurance III covers almost all amateur road racing and bike touring, as well as most circuit races and road races. Most professional races do not exceed 6 hours. The energy flow is low compared to the previous categories and allows for a higher proportion of fat burning. The 90- to 120-minute area, however, still does not have the same characteristics as long-term endurance III and constitutes the transition area between long-term endurance II and III.

Depending on fitness, sections are ridden at racing intensity or higher. Training in the race-specific zone can be performed with very high cadence and low power, with racing cadences and racing gear ratios, or with high gear ratios and correspondingly low cadences and high power. In group training, the leaders should not stay at the front for longer than 60 seconds in order to guarantee an even load for each cyclist. Another form of RSE training is motor-paced training, carried out in the wind shadow of a motorbike or car, which improves both speed endurance and motor skills.

In cycling, the aerobic energy supply is the most important metabolic pathway, as it can work for long periods of time, can provide relatively high amounts of energy, and can refill and regenerate both anaerobic metabolic pathways after they have been exhausted. In the aerobic metabolism, fats and carbohydrates are burned or oxidized. The most important fuel is glucose (aerobic glycolysis), a simple carbohydrate with the chemical formula C6H12O6. Glucose is the degradation product of the complex carbohydrates (see chapter 5).
