Flat Rock Ranch – Zombie Goat Enduro Race MTB Vlog 15

Back in late summer 2018, I had put a soft goal for myself to win the Southern Enduro Tour Men 40-49 age group. That meant that I needed to be sure to put in some work, both on and off the bike.

I did alright off the bike, adopting a 3 times per week workout routine that improved my strength off the bike, but I couldn’t put together time on the bike like I needed to actually train for riding.

Going into the Zombie Goat Enduro, I had only ridden my bike twice in the 60 days prior to the race. As you can imagine, this was a serious negative blow to my race output.

I tried to temper my expectations for my race performance, but I ended up doing about as well as would be expected with my lack of on the bike training.

Here is a compilation of my day 1 footage and I’m hoping to put together a day 2 video as well.

What I think will be more interesting to most is the fire this did spark in me to get back to training properly. In the 6 weeks following the Zombie Goat Enduro, I’ve hit most of my training plan and am on track for what I hope will be a strong finish at my next race at the Dino Enduro.
