Im 35 years old, I'm 5' 10 185 lbs, I have motocross racing experience (intermediate) I'm getting over the whole moto thing and the money it takes to compete, I have always loved to mountain bike and have been dong it since i was a kid (not competitively) So, i just started to up my ride time to get ready for some races in may, I live near a lake that has some really good technical stuff, my training loop is 16.2 miles and I climb about 1800 ft, @ 1 hr 40 minutes. I'm also going to other places with similar rides six days a week, last week I logged 10.2 ride hrs and climbed about 9500 ft. I'm on track to do similar this week. is there any tips anybody can give me to become a faster racer? what do you think of my regimen? I'm not real fond of riding on the street, my uncle was killed in an accident on the street and where i live everybody is texting while driving, the small amount of street riding i have to do to get to the trails is sketchy enough. I have vastly reduced my beer intake, and in this week and a half I already feel very strong, but i still struggle with long climbs and leg fatigue, thanks in advance.
