Plan Description

The Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race is a legendary race for a reason: it's HARD! But, you have a secret weapon; this plan has the key elements of my team Topeak-Ergon's sub-6-hour world record at Leadville Traill 100. This is a focused training plan for experienced competitive cyclists who balance training around a full-time job. It applies the training secrets of the pros along with other proven scientific methods. It’s exciting to share my custom workouts and insight that give me an edge at the toughest endurance races in the world. Unlike other 100-mile races, Leadville's lung-searing altitude, brutal climbs, and moon-like terrain make it a special challenge. If you have the motivation, this is the program that will help you achieve PR performance.

Requirements: Good base fitness (16 weeks of base training) and the ability to train 13-16 hours-a-week with the ability to ride 5-6 hours one day per week off-road. This plan includes a 4-day training trip (week 9 or 10) to higher elevation (5,000 feet higher than where you live/train). If this is not possible, you might do some hypoxic training for the last hour of each day for that week; but seek expert advice. Arriving in Leadville one week before the race is the most common arrival time for competitors. This timeframe will help performance and reduce risk of altitude sickness.

What Jeremiah Bishop’s Leadville 100 plan includes that you won't find anywhere else: • Daily race specific LV100 workouts for heart rate and power based; scaled by TSS • Top tips for tackling the lung-crushing altitude on race week • Testing protocols for honing in on what you really need • Nutrition protocols for optimizing your lipid power • Race day strategy and notes • Altitude-specific training block and workouts that benefit altitude performance • Optional initial phone consulting to customize your plan (Additional $80 fee)
