Plan Description

This plan is designed for those that have a background in mountain biking and have completed several endurance mountain bike races, or have an extensive background in mountain bike racing. This plan assumes that you're comfortable with rides over 4 hours, and have a good endurance base from which to build. This 12 week plan is designed to push your fitness and allow you to be prepared to ride off road for multiple days at a time.

It combines the workouts necessary to push your top end speed as well as the volume needed to sustain a top end pace over a longer distance. Expect 5 days of riding, 1 strength day, and one off day. Long rides are on the weekends, with shorter interval and tempo rides being performed during the week. It's necessary to have access to a heart rate monitor to take full advantage of this training plan.
