Plan Description

Our tried and tested LW Coaching 4 Day Mountain Bike Stage Race - Personal Record Plan has been updated 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.

This training plan is designed for a 3-4-day stage race consisting of three to four long hard and hilly days such as La Ruta or Breck Epic.

Prior to starting this 12 week plan you must be in the habit of riding 4-6 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 4 days in a row. You are peaking for this 4 Day Stage race.

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