100 km Mountain Bike Race - Finisher Plan

All plans by this Coach


12 Weeks

Plan Description

This 12 week plan is designed to prepare you to confidently and comfortably finish a 100km or marathon mountain bike event. Prior to starting this plan you should have been riding about 2-3 times per week and be confident riding off-road.

100 km marathon mountain bike events are short enough to require speed and long enough to require endurance, pacing and fueling to be trained. This plan is a combination of these aspects designed to bring an athlete into peak fitness for a 100 km event.

Each ride on Sunday has a specific focus to practice and prepare pacing, fueling, hydration, electrolyte balance, cadence and race specific skills. By race day you will have solid fitness and a solid race plan.

The plan uses heart rate and perceived exertion to guide training intensity. A heart rate monitor is required. Heart rate zones are set with a field test in week one.
