7-Day Mountain Bike Stage Race - Personal Record Plan

This plan is for the experienced endurance racer with goals to produce a personal best performance in a week long hilly mountain bike stage race such as Cape Epic, Trans Rockies, Trans Alps and Breck Epic. This is a demanding plan requiring a high level of dedication and motivation to achieve set goals. This is a PR plan.

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 6 - 7 days in a row. You are peaking for this Stage Race.

This is a 12 week training plan. The start of the stage race is planned for Saturday or Sunday in week #12 of the plan. Start this plan 12 weeks prior to your stage race start date.

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