      Hi! I’m brand new to LWC and excited for the stacked plans that I’m starting with Lynda. Anyone else here doing or has done the Breck Epic? Not sure if it will happen or not but I’m training for it in case it’s on.

      Great to have you on the team BB! Fingers crossed for Breck Epic happening this season. If the event does not happen, think about taking a vacation to Breckenridge and riding all the courses anyway! It will be fun, hard and a super way to pre-ride everything for 2021!

      Hi Lynda,

      Breck Epic has been postponed til next year because of Covid. It has been called. I would still like to go during that time to ride some/all of the trails. We have a place booked but it will depend on whether they will allow non-residents to stay. I am on week 4 of the Masters Cross Country Base Training Plan and was planning on doing till week 6 and starting the Masters stage race plan. Should I continue with this direction if I’m planning on still riding the trails in August? Breck Epic is also offering an “Epic In Place” (online training) for all 2020 registrants to train during summer so that is also an option? What do you think is the best course?

      Thank you and enjoying the training thus far!

      Hi BB,

      I saw Breck Epic was postponed. A tough decision for the promoters. I respect them for making the call early enough for athletes to pivot their plans. I highly recommend going to Breck if allowed and riding all the courses. I have done that myself in the past and it is a huge week! I recommend sticking to your plan and arriving in Breck fully prepared to take advantage of your time there.

      I do not know what the “Epic In Place” (online training) involves so cannot comment on that. Share any details you have and I can review that option.

      Yeah, tough situation all around. Tough call and yes that was nice they made the call already. I’m hoping Breck will allow visitors so we can ride as many as possible. I will stick to the plan then! I’ll post up once I hear more about Epic In Place and ask your thoughts on it. Thank you!
