Cape to Cape MTB Race

12 Week Training Program - Cape to Cape MTB

What if I have little time to train?
At each package level, we can write you a program for a 6 hour, 9 hour, or 12 hour per week training availability. For most working athletes we don’t generally recommend training for any more than this – remember, we’re all about training smarter, not longer! After buying a Cape to Cape program, you’ll be emailed a questionnaire (for Bronze+ riders and above) so we can tailor a Cape to Cape training program to you.  
What if I want more coach contact?
For more coaching – check out our monthly coaching  if you want Data analysis, further tweaking of your training program as you go, regular coaching contact & weekly feedback & more.   Alternatively, if you want more than the 4*20mins of coach offered in the top level, speak to your coach after purchasing & we can offer an addition upgrade package to add more hours so you have someone to ask more questions, provide more support & motivation to get the Cape to Cape results you want.
Still unsure which level to buy?
We recommend buying the Silver package to begin with. It gives you 2 coaching calls + a tailored training program that’s developed depending on your training availability (days of the week + hours – 6,9, 12 hours in the week). It also comes with a Today’s Plan Account.   If you have any further questions, please use the contact form to the right or below this text.
