MTB Fitness & DH skill training

Postby Andykerr » Sat Jan 19, 2013 12:10 pm

All right guys I am starting training to become more skilled and fitter MTBR. I am going to start by going up around Rivington moor and Darwen tower, I'm going to put as much climbing and as much downhill in as I can. So anyone want come along feel free to join. Going to start next weekend not sure what day are time but I will put further details on this forum, I'm open to advice are tips. I'm certainly not the fittest of bike riders just thought it would be a good idea to see if anyone wanted to achieve the same goal.

Funnily enough, after doing my first dh racers guild in december, I realised I really need to up my fitness. Been to a spinning class tonight, been meaning to for ages and so glad I did, 45 minutes of thrashing it none stop, my legs were killing on the way to the car.. do this for a while should really help. No mud aswell which is a bonus.

I'm not far from rivvy, so will tag along at some point.
