Oh, and another thing to bear in mind with training offroad on an MTB with a PM, is that endless bugbear of mine.
Gates........... everywhere.

That was one thing that used to drive me to train for MTB racing (in the UK) on the road, on a road bike. Can do 5-10-15 minute efforts, sprints, whatever you want.
Offroad, 10 minutes if you are lucky. Maybe a bit longer if you are out in the middle of nowwhere.
