This is a 10 week, beginner level mountain bike training plan for a cross country mountain bike race of about an hour and a half duration. The training plan is RPE and HR based, but will work with a power meter as well. The workouts are all time based, with an emphasis on quality of workouts over quantity. There is an emphasis on skills and racing etiquette during the weekly rides. The longest endurance ride is two and a half hours, with two interval workouts, one skills based ride, a group or endurance ride and the long rides on Sundays.
