Owen....its always good to train for these events but also they are a great way to gauge your fitness when first starting out and learning your strengths and weaknesses.

I did the 2009 Japan King of Endurance - 5 hour solo with pretty much no training and it really set the bar for the the 2010 season.

At the end of it I knew I had the legs for long haul enduro events but seriously lacked power and lactic recovery. I built a training program around this and it seems to have paid off.

Cool, yeah, I think that is a good idea too. This is still a few months away though, and I have been stepping up my riding of late, so hopefully I will be in better shape then than I am now!

Will you be entering this?

No won't be doing this one....In fact I will only be training and focusing on JCF, JCBF and UCI races in 2011. I may do some JCRC - Tour du Japon races and will certainly do the Itoigawa race again but won't be doing anything out side of this as I will have a very busy racing schedule.
