My A Race for next year is a 3 day MTB Stage race held here in Zambia. It is about 250km with about 3500m of climbing, mostly on single track with some sections on Jeep track and dirt roads. It is deep in the heart of the African bush and finishes on the banks of the Zambezi River with prize giving and drinks on an island in the middle of the river while the sun sets over the bush. Hippos, Elephants and Crocs all around!
I did the race this year, and loved it, but next year I want to go all out and really give it horns. I am following SSB Mid Vol, then will move onto Short Power Build, then onto X-Country Marathon ready for the first weekend in June when the race kicks off!
Here is a link to a summary video of the race, check it out!
I also have links for videos of Day 1, 2 & 3. If anyone is interested in them, I can post them as well…
So… tell us, what A Race are you training for?
