      Hello Linda,

      My FTP is around 338 W and my VO2max is around 60, age 39, weight 90 kg.
      I’m searching for a trainingsplan for a race (70 km marathon) at the beginning of april 2020 (this is within 19/20 weeks).

      Can you give me an advice which trainingsplan(s) I should purchase?

      I recommend you start with our 12-week Category 1 Cross Country Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan, then progress on to our 12-week 50 Mile Mountain Bike Race Personal Record Mountain Bike Training Plan. To time-crunch this 24 week training plan stack into 20 weeks, miss out the first 4 weeks of the 50 miler plan.

      Hello Lynda, thank you,
      I only have 6-8 hours a week to train so the full program is not possible for me.
      For “Category 1 Cross Country Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan” I saw a time-crunched version, do you also have a time-crunched (6-8 hours a week) version for “50 Mile Mountain Bike Race Personal Record Mountain Bike Training Plan”? Or is the “TIME CRUNCHED Category 1 Cross Country Mountain Bike Build, Peak and Race Mountain Bike Training Plan” also suited to prepare for a 50 mile race?

      Hi Harry,

      The TIME CRUNCHED Category 1 Cross Country Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan is a solid option for athletes with limited training hours.

      We do not have a time-crunched 50 miler plan. You can time-crunch our 50 Mile Mountain Bike Race Personal Record Mountain Bike Training Plan by dropping all the recovery rides in favor of passive rest and shortening all warm-up and cool down times on interval training days. If you need to time-crunch it further, drop day 1 and day 6 from the plan in favor of passive rest.

      Coach Lynda
