Month 2 – Muscular Endurance Event-specific build (wk12 – wk9)
Build that important muscular endurance so that you can make the finish line within the cut off time
During this phase, we will be building Muscular Endurance which is essential for completing the event and making those strict cut off times. You will be given the exact training needed to complete the challenge along with event-specific sessions.
Month 3 – Build (wk8 – wk5)
Raise your fitness ceiling so that you can push on and attack those short climbs on tired legs
Work on that fatigue resistance to simulate late in the event when the legs are tired but you still need to dig deep on those short shart climbs!

Peak your cycling fitness so you are confident you have the ability to complete the event!
The biggest training block in the plan along with the perfect taper into the event so you are fresh and fit to complete the event!

Know how much to rest and what to expect on the day so that you arrive at the start line in top form with all the knowledge needed!
This is what will make or break your event. Proceed with caution! You cannot build any fitness during this time but you sure can lose a great deal of form! During this time you will learn valuable advice on travelling to Mallorca and everything you need to know ahead of the event. You can then enjoy the day and have a stress free trip!
