About the Author
Hi I’m Lee, and I like bikes. Some things I’ve done: • Wrote the books Mastering Mountain Bike Skills, Teaching Mountain Bike Skills, Pro BMX Skills, Welcome to Pump Track Nation, Pump Up the Base and Prepare to Pin It. • As the skills development director for NICA, the national high school mountain bike league, I create the curriculum and teach it to riders, coaches and the coaches who teach coaches how to teach riders. • I work with riders of all style and levels, from beginners to world champions. • In a previous career, I was part of the team that won the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. I honed my infographics skills at a daily newspaper. • Between intervals and coaching sessions, I design technical and business systems. It’s all about clarity, man.

The key is calculating and working with your lactate theshold. This stuff can get complicated (I have Joe Friel's book too which sometimes makes my eyes glaze over) but Lee makes it easy to understand and implement. Also, make sure you are fit and able to do these workouts as they are hard. What, you thought getting stronger was going to be easy?
All of the "workouts" are flexible and open to adjustment. Options are presented throughout depending on what kind of riding you do and what you're looking for. Want to ride a trainer? Cool, no problem. Want to do your training on the trails? Cool, no problem.
These simple, easy to follow training programs seem to based on good science as much of what I've read here dove-tails with other information I've found online about training zones, heart rate and power.
Easy to read too! Honestly I feel like I have a personal coach, especially when combined with Lee's other books and stuff available on his website and YouTube.
I'm impressed enough that I'm going to look into Lee's virtual coaching program.
