I had my final MTB race of the year 3 weeks ago. It was a 5+ hour race 57 miles and 5,300 ft of climbing. Anyway, I have had a few weeks to take it easy. So now I need to get back to a focus and prepare for a 10+ hour indoor challenge (The Sufferfest Knighthood).
What plan would be good?
What % of FTP should I shoot for?
Should I use ERG mode on my trainer at a lower %? if so 60%, 75%
Should I use standard mode on my trainer?
