Everesting Training Tips


#1

I’m taking things a bit easier next year after a coyote of hard seasons. My one goal next year is to complete an everesting. I remember Jonathan mentioning he completed one in the past.

I was thinking SSB l & ll, sustained power build and then 40 km TT plan. Specifically to be able to hold power for a long length of time, build muscular endurance and pacing.

Does anyone have any experience of training for an everesting and does my approach look valid.

Also any other tips that could be useful?

Any specific workouts that would be good training?

Not that I’ve ever attempted it, but I’d like to in the future. I agree with your base and build, but I’d be more inclined to do the century specialty plan due to the length of the endeavor and the sustained power needs.

DItto. It’s just one of those things I want to do.

I think both GCN and BikeRadar(?) did Everesting vids this year, the BR one had more in-depth gear, training, and nutrition info. I’d think gear and nutrition and logistic planning would be far more impactful and important than training.

I think in both attempts the riders were pacing in Z2/Endurance.
