Plan Description

12 Week Plan to get ready for the Firecracker 50 MTB Race. Plan includes not just on the bike training but off the bike core and strength work, very important to keep you from breaking down in the long race.

The plan progresses from aerobic foundation, to threshold with over/under work, and then into more specific race intensity. That said, the plan will yield the best results for someone that has at least 4-6 weeks of base miles coming into it.

Field test in the second week to establish power and heart rate zones, both devices help but not a necessity!

Good luck, enjoy!

I love bikes, in any and all forms. For me it is as simple as that. I've built my life around cycling, and to have it be my livelihood is a privilege. At this point I've worked with a wide range of athletes from people chasing a PR in their local century, to MTB racers, to WTS triathletes and World Tour Road Racers. I love it all.
