Athlete should have some experience with XC racing and have finished a 3/6hr XC race and is seeking to step it up to a 12hr/100mile endurance event such as NUE Series races or the famed Leadville 100. This plan is designed with an average of 12hrs of time available to train per week with a peak week of 15hrs. Most workouts are no more than 2hrs with the biggest rides placed on the weekend. It is laid out for Power Meter users or for Heart Rate based athletes.
**It is reccomended that you perform a Threshold Test prior to starting plan, this can be done at home on a trainer or outside, since plan is based off percentages of your FTP(Functional Threshold Power) or FTHR (Functional Threshold Heart Rate).**
