Mt. Fuji Dojo Series Group Workout

With training well underway for the Mt Fuji Hill Climb and having ridden Mount Fuji in the Zwift Climb Portal, I thought it would be relevant to highlight this structured training event, which contains some nice ramped efforts, mirroring the increasing gradient of a climb.
