FIRST XTERRA WIN FOR A KUNG FU STUDENT!

Hey Lee, I don’t know if you remember me, I attended the Utah clinic you guys put on last spring … anyway, my daughter and I have been on the trails almost every day since then, always yelling out whatever Lee taught us that the other is not doing … I finally won my age group at an XTERRA, on the most technical course I’ve done. I still can’t keep up on 4,000 ft of climbing because I am 30-40 lbs heavier then the other guys, but the technical riding and more punchy climbs are mine. I have gotten to the point of zero hand callouses, no wrist pain, and no arm fatigue from death gripping the bars. I think about what you taught daily, and still go back and read your books fairly often. Thanks for taking the effort to single me out and give me some help.

THE JOY OF NOT RACING


Last weekend was a big deal in Winter Park, CO. You had the Air Downhill, the Enduro World Series, the Slopestyle, some cross country and more I’m sure.

I didn’t compete at all. It felt strange, but it was good.

CADENCE FOR HARD INTERVALS?

Hi Lee.
I finished your Pump up the Base program (and loved it) and I’m now moving on to Prepare to Pin It. I do have a couple of RPM related questions:

Sprint Workouts: You mention the 5 seconds being “full gas” but you then recommend sets maxing out a 100 RPMs. I can definitely mix it up but I’m wondering how hard it should be shooting for ultimately.

Red workouts: Similarly, what RPM should I focus on to in the intervals to reach the desired power? In PUTB, you were very prescriptive on this which really helped. Since this affects my gear selection, I could use some guidance here as well.

Thanks for everything!! Not only is this helping me on the trail, but I’ve slimmed down which is great everyday!

SHREDDING WITH THE CAVEMAN


It’s been my pleasure to help 7-time XTERRA world champion the “Caveman” Conrad Stoltz get even faster and smoother on his bike. Oh yeah, and he’s having more fun too.

In this video we ride Hall Ranch in Lyons, CO. Conrad is fast!

Hone your skills and shred with skills expert Lee McCormack and pro racer Curtis Keene.

I’ve known Curtis for a long time (from way before he was the “American Dream”). He’s a great guy, a good teacher and of course an exceptional athlete. Many of my best rides have been on his wheel. I’m stoked to teach with him at Winter Park, CO on July 20, 2014.

POWER METER FOR PREPARE TO PIN IT?

Hi Lee,

I’m trying to do your Prepare to Pin It in-season training program, I just bought your book but I can’t really get it with the watt measurement. I have a Sigma Rox 9.1 cycle computer that ¨calculates¨
the watt I´m generating.
The power meter you refer to in your book is the one that goes in the crank?
Should I better go by bpm´s?

Thanks a lot for your time,
José
