      Hi Lynda

      I’m looking for a plan for a 60+ racer. Although it’s been a while since I’ve raced my bike, I’m pretty active. I run, bike with my dogs, hike, and spend some time in the gym. I just signed up for a 6 hr race July 27th. What training plans would work for me?

      Hi Karen,

      I recommend you stack our 12-week Masters 40+ Mountain Bike Base Mountain Bike Training Plan and our 12-week Masters 40+ 50 Mile Mountain Bike Personal Record Mountain Bike Training Plan to peak for a July 27th 6-hour solo race as follows:

      1/15/2024 Start the Base plan at week 1 and follow weeks 1-3. Do 50% of the volume on every workout.
      2/5/2024 Re-start the Base plan at week 1 and follow weeks 1-12.
      4/29/2024 Take a week off training for extra rest or to catch up on a missed week.
      5/6/2024 Start the 50 mile plan and follow weeks 1-12 to peak for your July 27th 6 hour solo race.

      Coach Lynda
