Having a great ride at your Goal Event takes focused preparation and so much more...
One of the best ways to test your preparation and see if you are on track, as well as uncover any weak links, is by doing "mock races" or Lead-Up events.
These events or training sessions simulate the speed, intensity, duration, distance, climbing, or workload that you expect to face at your Goal Event (Note: hopefully as many of the items from that list as possible!).
In our preparation for the Mammoth Gran Fondo this September we helped a number of Athletes prepare for, and execute, their best strategy at last weekends Tour de Big Bear. It was their very own dress rehearsal for Mammoth and a perfect "Lead Up" event.
After the event we put together this weeks podcast to share the planning, execution, and debrief process we use with our Athletes that is so helpful for riders of all levels trying to stretch their limits and improve.
The discussion between Coaches Joy and Brian, as well as the topics covered, are not unique to Gran Fondo riding and can be adapted to cyclocross, road racing, endurance MTB events, gravel adventures, and more!
