So i have been racing xc a few years now and i have seem to hit a road block. I am having trouble keeping up with everyone on the climbs and sometimes the flat areas like dirt roads. I guess i just need to train harder but does anyone have some advice for what to do?

2 words: interval training. O.k. and a couple more words...drop the processed sugar from your nutrition, really focused hard interval training, maybe spin classes all winter?

If you train harder, make sure to recover just as hard. So, good sleep and throw in a week off or a recovery week of easy rides ever-so-often (I am not smart enough to know how often to do recovery weeks).
