Want to get fit and strong in 2018? Then this is the episode for you! Ben Plenge from MTB Strength Factory joined us to answer your questions. We tackled the main themes that came up, which were warm up and cool down, maximising use of your time, tapering, injury recovery, and training for older riders, as well as some other great questions. Have a listen and I’m sure there will be something in there for you, that will help you ride further, faster and harder in 2018!
