TRAINING

To prepare you for the ultimate ride, the following training plans are specifically designed for the 2018 Prospera Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan. Special thanks to Lewis Morrison (MSc, CSEP-CEP, FMS-2, BWLA), director of sports science at The Peak Centre for Human Performance in Vancouver, B.C., for customizing plan for each of our four distances.

The training plans are applicable for all distances, including the Cortofondo (55 km), Mediofondo (92 km), Velocefondo (126 km) and Granfondo (160 km). The updated, 9-month plans will be posted here in the beginning of November.

To start, download the Training Plan Information document. This document will describe training zones, proper fuelling, and outline program descriptions.
