Plan Description

This plan is for Intermediate and advanced riders doing the Leadville 100 Trail Mountain Bike Race

This plan will get you fit but also make sure you are prepared technically, tactically and logistically. It follows the same progressions and ideas I have used to get many athletes under 11 hours at Leadville and several under 9 hours using very similar programs to this one. For goals under 9 hours, I would suggest looking at coaching or a custom 3-month plan (see below)

It is a 6 Month plan that can be started in Months 3,4,5, or 6. Starting earlier is generally better!

The plan requires about 6-8 hours in shorter weeks up to 12-15 hours in longer weeks. There is a fair bit of range depending on your daily availability and base-line fitness.

I have included weekly/monthly notes to help guide athletes towards the preparation required to succeed. My experience has been that much of the success at this event is due to mental toughness and really strong preparation. This plan aims to help you with these aspects, as well as your physical fitness.

Features Downloadable workouts for Garmin/Zwift/Trainer Road AND strength routines in PDF downloads!

For $99, I offer 3 months 100% Made For You Plans, which often works better as it takes your schedule, goals, equipment, and abilities into account ->
Thank you for checking out my plans!
