Hi, all of the training programs are designed for road disciplines - time trial, climber, criterium, sprinter etc. As a MTB XCO racer, what’s your opinion on the best program to choose in the performance/advanced category ?
That is a good question! True we are (at this early stage) road cycling focused. But that does not mean this very early content cannot be applied to other cycling disciplines; such as Cross Country MTB. From what I understand about your specialty it’s hard and fast from the gun with lots of short sharp burst of explosive power. However you also need a good base of endurance and strength to get through an Olympic distance race. So if I have got that right then I would suggest the Advanced Team Time Trial Program. It’s actually a very close fit to how I imagine your event.
There are some caveats which are going to be explained via podcast we are producing this week. These are general rules and observations around indoor training. So keep an eye out for the pending release of this audio.
Thanks, this seems to make sense! Can I look forward one day to a program designed specifically for XCO?
Sure, why not?
