Hi Guys

Has anyone started with training already.. what miles are you covering? Hours on the bike ?

Nutrition using ?

Are you training on Hard Tail or Duel ?

Do you train your base miles with a road or MTB ?

havent started training. normal nutrition, but get used to powerade.

duel if you dont finish top 10.

base miles easier with road bike, but lots of guys do it on mtb with slicks.

dont stress to much, not that bad.

6 August is our official start date! Looking at weekly hours of between 13 and 20 per week!

 Will be mixing it between road and MTB - MTB during the week and Road bike on the weekends!

Doing it on a hardtail and call me "OCD" but you have more feeling for the bike. Weird I know dont ask.

 

Eating what I normally eat, why change 8months before? You not gonna start to carbo load now are you??

 

Havent started training for it yet Im training for our Spring league from Sept-November then will train for Summer League and then go do the Epic for some relax time and fun. 97% will be on the road and I'll go offroad once or twice a week to keep the technical thing in order but thats about it.

Doing the same as colonel - focusing on all sorts of other things for now - Spring and Summer Leagues, Dirtopia 24hr etc.

 

But I have started training already, with the Epic being the end goal.

Good lOrd what you haven;t started training yet???!

 

Dude you better get started cos you need at least 52 weeks to get into any decent sort of shape for the Epic.

 

Hours per week currently: 10.

Nutrition: A blanced diet of Sushi, Steak and veggies, Water, Coffee, and Pronutro washed down with Becks Non Alcoholic

Bike: road bike, MTB, Girlfriend. doesn't matter just get the miles in.

 

 

These things aren;t important. you ave to start thining about what tyres, what shifters,  what shorts.

 

Damn man you are so far behind.
