Plan Description

This 12 week plan is designed specifically for those looking to be competitive at a 24 hour off-road race. It assumes that you've spent ample time in a base period and have a solid aerobic foundation. You'll need to have ample experience riding off road, be comfortable riding in technical terrain, and have some experience completing long mountain bike races/rides.

Most weeks will consist of an off day on Monday, 5 days of riding, and 1 strength day, with the exception of the peak weeks leading up to the race. Those final weeks will not include strength sessions. All of the 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 or power meter to take full advantage of this training plan.
