Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

I wonder if anyone has any sessions for training on the turbo for cross races. I get in the top ten but need a little more.
I have a decent turbo trainer, HR monitor and can follow a plan. The cross races I do last 40 mins as I'm a vet now, 43 years of age.
Skills wise Im above average and make up in the tech scetions as Im from a MTB background and still do 2-3 MTB rides a week.

Cheers :thumbup:

I would suggest 2x20s at threshold with 2-5 min rest in between or 10-20x(30s on, 30s off).

Although I wouldn't do them on the trainer; sure you'll gain some strength but why not emulate the race conditions? I do them up and down a big field on the grass, on dirt roads and on off camber along the side of the road. When the weather gets really bad I setup my trainer and warm up and cool down on it inside but still do the cross "work" outside.

Just don't practice your dismounts and shouldering, could be a bit heavy with the trainer still attached. :lol:

As far as 'cross fitness goes, I think Tabata intervals are still the best on the trainer. Start with 2 sets of 8 x 20s all out / 10s rest. Add more sets if you're a masochist :)
