If you’ve been hitting the trails regularly since you started mountain biking, you’ll soon be developing an itch – an itch for racing. But don’t be too gung-ho; racing is a whole new ballgame, and you need to be race-ready in order to get through it in one piece. Events, while containing all the fun of being out on the trails, also have the added pressure of meeting cut-off times, riding in big groups, tackling tricky single-track and obstacles with others in front and behind – all vying for the same spot, and most importantly, the necessary fitness and skill to reach the finish line smiling. In short, the racing environment is a different beast. So to help you on your way, we have an eight-week training plan to get you through that first race intact.
