'Starter' Training Plan


This 9 week training plan takes those who are new to mountain bike racing and steps through the fundamental steps and training required to successfully complete this race.


Your training plan is periodised so you start with a 4 week base strength endurance phase. This is then followed by a 5 week speed phase working on your anaerobic threshold, before tapering your training leading into race day.  

Your training plan is designed so you load your body with training stress (longer and harder training sessions) during LOAD weeks while during your RECOVERY weeks your training stress will be reduced so your body is able to recover and adapt to the training you did in your LOAD weeks.


Weekly training duration in this plan vary from 2 hour 45 min – 5 hours 15 min during your LOAD weeks and 2 hour 45 min – 4 hours 15 min during your RECOVERY weeks.
