      Hi Lynda!
      I’m coming back from a MTB road trip in Montana and all that climbing has me confident to race a 6 HR lap race on September 21. I’m recovering this week, then working a school backpacking trip the following week, which gives me 6 weeks of earnest training before the race. Which weeks do you recommend from a 40+ Masters 50 mi PR Plan?
      Many thanks,
      Sarah

      Hi Sarah,

      A Montana MTB road trip sounds fantastic. What were your favorite trails?

      I recommend following weeks 7-12 of the 40+ Masters 50 mi PR Plan to prep for your 6 HR lap race on September 21,

      Coach Lynda

      Ok, sounds good on the plan, thanks!

      I think my favorites were: for fun flowy quality trails, the trails around Helena; for amazing terrain and views, the Lionhead CDT from Targhee Pass over to Mile Creek, amazing!

      Best,
      Sarah

      Sarah,

      I rode Targhee Pass to Mile Creek last year and it was amazing!

      Awesome! Anything else notable in that area/ Bozeman? I am stoked to return.

      Bangtail Divide trail near Bozeman was one of my favs. We hit it when the mushrooms were huge and flowers peaking!
