Enduro Race Training – BikeJames Podcast

In this new episode of the BikeJames Podcast I share my thoughts on Enduro Racing and how to approach
training riders for it. A lot of riders are making some common mistakes with their training and my goal is to help you avoid them while knowing what you did need to focus on to be successful at Enduro Racing.

journey, then this podcast will have a lot of great info for you. Enduro Racing can be a fun and rewarding part of your mountain biking experience and with the right training plan it can be even better.

Until next time…

Ride Strong,

    Hi James,

    I’ve been listening to this pod cast a few times actually, to try and really understand the whole content. I’ve also bought several of your programs and I’ve used them for several years (although not all the time).

    I’m a 40+ rider trying to become a better enduro racer. Today I usually end up somewhere in the middle of my local enduro races, but I want to become better, although I know I’ll never be close to winning any of the races.

    Also I have a full time job and family with 4 kids, limiting my training time.I probably have like 5-6 hours per week for training.

    So I have two questions about the pod cast that I hope you can answer:

    1. For a rider like me, is this an in-season training program, or something I could use all year around?

    2. Would a weekly schedule like this seem like a good implementation for me?
    Monday: Ramping isometrics, 45 min
    Tuesday: Moderate skills ride, 1 hour (focus on flow and workign my way through your Progressive skills training plan)
    Wednesday: Mobility, 15 min (like the Shin Box Mobility Routine)
    Thursday: Ramping Isometrics, 45 min
    Friday/Saturday: Moderate skills ride, like above, but only every other week.
    Sunday: Hard race simulation, 3 hours

    Thanks, and keep posting good content!
    (wish your podcasts were on Acast though)

      Thanks for the questions, always happy to help.

      1 – You can do this all year round, although in the “off season” you could devote some of the time you would be riding to and extra workout or two.

      2 – Yeah, that plan sounds solid. Don’t really have anything to add or suggest.

      I’ll look into Acast, thanks for the suggestion.
