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 work week with one altitude 4 day training camp 3 weeks from the goal. 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 (14 weeks of base training) and the ability to train 10-14 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 7-10 days before the race is the most common arrival time for competitors.
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 $70 fee)
