Rab’s World: It’s winter training Jim, but not as we know it…

January 21, 2013

Our tame racer, Rab Wardell, shows us how he gets the winter miles in north of the border. (A clue – he doesn’t.)

Winter Training: Does it have to be boring?

As a cross-country racer, winter is an important time for me. First of all there is a little down time to recover from the previous year before building up for the following season. Traditionally for a cross-country racer, and more and more commonly for a downhill or enduro racer, this means long and steady riding: base miles, often undertaken on road bikes. Boring, cold and often miserable.

You too could spend your weekends face down in a bog in the pursuit of fitness. No? Okay then... Picture thanks to Joolze Dymond.
