You wouldn't happen to have any links that would lead to maps of the area you are talking about would you? Always looking for new dual sport rides in SC.

Pure cardio. predictable heart rate targets, sustained hills, etc. Mtb's are great for that and form, and getting on two wheels, but the road bikes are like standard metrics.

To my mind, anyway, you can create a very specific training regimen using a road bike. You can specify a cadence, and a gearing, and time frames to maintian each, whereas MTBing is fairly haphazrd, and that means you can miss opportunities to do better. Not that its not good and fun, mind you- its just harder to use as a professional training regimen, and I bet these guys do nothing haphazardly. They probably spend at least 50% of their lives actively in training.

I'm a cyril fan boi, and i actually did that video. Its more like a warmup than an actual workout. The Spatacus/tabata stuff is wicked harder.

oh ok...I guess it's easier to hit the training zone and maintain it on a road bike.

I have a MTB loop a few miles from my house which I train on a few times a week. It takes 20 minutes to complete one loop, and I do that 5 times unitll my quads are burning even on the fast downhill section. I have very limited access to dirt bike riding so the MTB is the only was to train on 2 wheels for me. I wear the Polar RS400 to keep track of my zone, and I pretty sure it helps with my stamina on a dirt bike. Now if only I can match my riding skill to my stamina....but that's atleast another 10,000 hours away.

Yeah, the RS400 is a heart rate monitor/watch that stores your workout and is able to record the zones and then download them all into their software to analyze. I've been using it a few years and it works great. The only downside is the wearing the strap around the chest which can get annoying at times.

Less than a month away! Been busy tuning and riding the 690, so far it's working pretty good.

That would be difficult No volunteering is not quite a requirement, yet, and if you do volunteer as well as race it would have to be at a time when you werent involved in racing... I mean like friday beforehand, halping with reg or something, if oyu didnt have NCO to attend or something.

Hey: I thought the riders who attend the NCO have to clean the googles and get lunch and stuff for the rest of the group.

Remember the first NCO "co-driver go get chair" the big dude with a pony tail who drove a tricked out Audi, think his name was Tibor or something, but the timming and accent was priceless
