Plan Description

This plan is for the endurance racer with goals to produce a personal best performance in a week long hilly mountain bike stage race such as BCBR, Cape Epic, Single-track 6, Train Rockies, Trans Alps and Breck Epic and more. This is a demanding plan requiring a high level of dedication and motivation to achieve set goals. This Personal Record plan is designed with TrainingPeaks structured workouts to make the most of both indoor and outdoor riding opportunities. For outdoor training, power (watts), TSS and IF targets can be downloaded to your Garmin. For indoor training, download your plan to your favorite Smart Trainer app such as Zwift, Rouvy or Trainer Road.

Prior to starting this 12-week plan you must be in the habit of riding 4+ times per week and be familiar with mountain bike racing. Four hour rides have been a regular part of your riding routine for the past few months. This plan assumes you enter with a good fitness base and are spending the next 12 weeks putting a fine point on your ability to race fast and hard for 6 - 7 days in a row. You are peaking for this Stage Race.

This is a 12 week training plan. The start of the stage race is planned for Saturday or Sunday in week #12 of the plan. Start this plan 12 weeks prior to your stage race start date.

This is a tough plan to ready you for a challenging race.
