How To Train For A Mini Bike Race
Learn how to train for a mini bike race and avoid unwanted stress on your body. Riding in a mini bike race of any type can really test your endurance if you haven't trained for it, so learn the proper way to build up your endurance and get ready for your mini bike race.
What you'll need:
- a bicycle, preferably a racing type
- a little time
- a bike odometer
- a stopwatch
- Build it up. Training for a mini bike race will help you get into great shape before the race. You'll need to build up your distance and speed gradually, so you don't overtax your body on race day.
- Start training. At least a month before the mini bike race, begin training for the event. First, work on distance, using your odometer as your guide. Begin riding to train on a daily basis, giving yourself one day off per week to rest. Start out with a reasonable distance on the first day, then over the course of the next weeks, work your way up until you can ride the entire distance of the race with no problems.
- Work on speed. After you have conquered the distance part of the training, then begin working on speed training for the mini bike race, using your stop watch and your odometer in conjunction with one another. Build up your speed on a daily basis, until you feel confident that you have reached a good speed for the distance that you'll be riding in the mini bike race.
