Performance Advantage Episode 24: Training for Enduro Mountain Biking with Dr Matt From MTB PhD

Dr Matt is giving you the very best advice on training for enduro mountain bike events. Enduro mountain biking consists of multiple timed downhill segments that add up to the riders overall time. Not only do riders need to be fast down the hill but they also need to ride from one section to another. When these events are held over two days, this can amount to some very big days on the bike. 

Dr Matt teaches us that fitness is more important than speed but skill trumps everything.

Also in the show, Will talks about his first running injury in forever and how he’s dealing with it with only four weeks until his 100km race! Dr Matt wins a mountain bike race with the help of some young speedsters.
