2013 ZoeFitness 3-Day Mountain Bike Altitude Training Camp
Albuquerque/Santa Fe National Forest, New Mexico
July 12th- July 14 th 2013
This camp is designed specifically to help you analyze and improve your performance on the Mountain Bike at Altitude. This particular camp is periodized with Leadville 100 Race Across the Sky Mountain Bike Race. I will help you, through 1st hand examples, how to tap into your best performance at altitude starting with Day I, Friday, riding at a moderate altitude.
In the afternoon, I will be presenting information that will give you helpful hints to best combat the side effects of altitude: signs and symptoms of altitude sickness, hydration and nutrition tricks, that have been proven and are recommended by the scientific community. I hope to present the latest research on Altitude Training and Racing in a useful and practical fashion so that you can take home with you the most practical applications available.
The second day, Saturday, we will journey to “New Mexico’s Highest Elevation State Park” at 8500 feet. At which point, we will climb to one of the highest peaks in New Mexico, above 12,000 feet.
The Third day, Sunday we will be riding King of the Mountain at Sandia Ski Area. The “A” Group will have the honors of riding the single track that leads up to Ski Hill highlighting some of the New Mexico Endurance Series Event; Watermelon Beatdown.
I recognize that we may all respond differently to altitude, as well as, be at different stages in our training so I will have 2 guided groups each day. There will be an “A” Group, that will ride 3-4 hours at a faster pace, riding more trail, and more technical trail. I will also be providing a “B” Group which will ride 2-3 hours each day, covering less total distance, with less technical aspects each ride.
I will provide light snacks after rides, as well as some light snacks during the talk portion of these events. Infinit Nutrition will be providing samples for each participant and Zoefitness will be providing water bottles for participation.
So whether you’re training specifically for a high altitude race this summer, looking to learn how your body adapts to riding at higher elevations, or just want to check out some new trail; this is the event for you!
