Nine days to ride 6 x 100K! Complete this challenge and you will ready to rock your season and crush your competition.

Blow away your competition this summer by showing up stronger, leaner, and faster! You can spend endless hours on weekends on the trainer trying to build base, but nothing compares to a compact, structured, high mileage training week.

Who Should Do This Event?
Cyclists looking to get a big jump on their base mileage for spring and summer riding need to get some road under their seat, and this multi-day spring training event is an awesome way to get big mileage, and big gains, while minimizing the risk of injury.

Triathletes – One of the biggest mistakes we see triathletes make every season is trying to ride as hard as they can during their weekly training to try to get stronger. Often, this backfires and riders get injured, and they also lack muscular endurance to actually translate interval power on the trainer to outdoor sustained power output. They almost always blow through building their cycling base, and as a result of thin foundation, they crumble under pressure.

Event Description
Two event categories:
Category 1 – Six 100K rides (or a total of 600K) between 4/17/21 and 4/25/21
These rides may be completed each day (ideally) or in the event of rain, spread over the 9 days. Riders may complete a 45’ indoor trainer ride in Zone ½ (under 65% FTP) for any rain days to count as a ride day, in the event more than 2 rain days occur and still qualify for the gift card.
Example 1: Rider A chooses to ride 100K outdoors on 4/17, 4/18, 4/19, 4/20, 4/21 and 4/22. This is the traditional model we use in Spring Training Camp in Arizona in non-Covid times.

Example 2: Rider B chooses to ride 40 miles (64.38KM) on 4/17, 4/18 40 miles, 4/19 OFF, then 4/20 100K, 4/21 100K, 4/22 100K, 4/23 OFF, 4/24 150K, and 4/25 20K.

Category 2 – Six 62’ rides, or a total of 372’ of riding in any combination of indoor trainer and outside between 4/17/21 and 4/25/21. For indoor riding, it is okay to split up rides into AM & PM rides, I.E. 45’ AM, 17’ PM, or whatever combination works for you. The goal is to get the total “Time on Seat” over the 9 day period.
