Is there a training plan?
Pablo: This is a good question because everyone is different, and has different ways of training, but we recommend to skate on a regular basis, at least 2-3 times a week. Find a trail that you are comfortable and skate approximately 8-10 miles each time. Once in a while go longer, but don’t over do it that you get burned, start slow, build your endurance. Practice sprinting.
