Whether you are a veteran of the race and want to PR or you are a first timer this plan is designed to help you meet your goal. This is not just a list of workouts, but a compressive guide to succeed in the race. The plan is designed for someone that has a flexible schedule, is self motivated and can follow the guide with little interaction from the coach. For those people that need more structured help and interaction throughout the training process you’ll want our Basic Coaching and Personal Coaching services.

The training schedule starts 24 weeks out from race day. The workouts are designed to create a strong base and progressively build up to 2 weeks before race day and taper two weeks prior to the race. The 12 week program starts 12 weeks from race day and focus primarily on race specific workouts.
The workout schedule is delivered on your free TrainingPeaks Basic account. You will be able to see your schedule, have the workouts emailed daily and upload your training sessions to review your progress.
Talk with the Coach
Schedule two 60 min consulting sessions with a coach to discuss your goals and ask questions about your training plan, pacing, nutrition, equipment etc. The 12 week program includes one 60 min session.
If you upload your workout sessions to TrainingPeaks the coach can review your progress and give you suggestions or feedback on your workouts.
With the purchase of this plan you get access to our private Facebook group and get expert advice on training, racing and equipment choices. You can also interact with other members for their advice and experience.
Nutrition is a key factor to endurance training and racing. Improper fueling can ruin your training and destroy your race. The MTBCoach nutrition guides provide the details on how, what and when to eat, along with a race day meal plan and race fueling strategy.
The Training and Racing handbook provides information to help you through the training process, prepare you for race day and execute your race with a nutrition and pacing guide.

Curt helped me get fit and fast for Enduro racing. This is a hard format to train for due to the need for endurance as well as short power bursts. Stages can be upwards of 15 minutes redlined and Curt did a great job of building a program for me that made me competitive.
I had the pleasure of working with both Curt and Ben Stein and I will highly recommend them to anyone that wants to step up their athletic game. It does not matter if you are now starting or on a competitive level, they will work with you based on your needs and wants and get you exactly where you need to be. 10 out of 10
I signed up with Curt to help me tackle the Breck-Epic. He is a coach that has walked the talk and done this race, and has great feedback. That was important to me when choosing a coach and plan. I was thoroughly impressed with his base and build programs offered, finding them very informative and extremely critical to completing the race. I subscribed to his personal coaching services the last six weeks before the event and he was always willing to answer, explain and guide my training progress. He assessed my progress and was helpful with any necessary changes due to scheduling, fatigue or the race in general. His plans I found very balanced for a working father with a family of five. The plans have a nice harmony of rest and training through-out. Curt guided me with on-bike nutrition which was a game changer as I had not focused in on that in the past so much. His guidance and helpful demeanor allowed me to recover faster and train harder. Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with how my fitness progresed and feedback I received as I trained for the race and ultimately finished the biggest race of my life. Thank you!
I have been working with MTBCoach for several years to train and prepare for many races, in-season and off-season. I have consistently gotten faster and have completed many NUE races as well several tough stage races, always finishing each better than the last. The scheduling is flexible and since my training time is limited I can ensure that my time on the the bike is spent in the most efficient manner possible. Curt is always quick to answer questions, make adjustments, provide feedback and motivation. Highly recommended for athletes of any level!
I only trained for a short while with Coach Ben but the entire MTB coach set up is very professional. I am a working mum of four and I needed a coaching schedule that I could squeeze in and a coach who understood that I needed to be able to flex. I got just that. Clear instructions, encouragement plus good results! I definitely recommend them.
I worked with Ben for the 10 months leading up to my first 70.3. Through Ben’s coaching I successfully completed the race and stayed focused and injury-free for the duration of my training. I would definitely recommend MTB Coach for anyone looking to meet and exceed racing goals!
