I have found my Mount Sufferlandria for the 2021 season, and that is to do well at a local 24 hour solo singlespeed mountain bike race. This will be my first solo 24, but I’ve done a handful of team events before. I’ve been looking through the sufferfest training plans, and struggling a bit to decide which will work best for my goals. To make things even more complicated, I have a 100 mile race (SS) one month prior to the event - the 100 miler is the end of June, with the 24 hour the end of July. My mental ATP for this is to focus on the 100 miler, and essentially taper with more high-volume, lower intensity rides between. This has worked well for the team events in the past, which are obviously at a higher intensity, but offer rest periods for the recovery.
I’m leaning towards handling the Tour of Suff prep plan, doing the Tour, then doing the KoS prep plan/KoS attempt at the end of March. By then, the trails should/could be good enough to get outside and ride again. Of course, if there is a better/more focused plan out there, I am happy to switch to that. Any thoughts?
