First MTB Strength Factory Race Win!

_DSC5224

I am really stoked to announce that the first MTB Strength Factory trained athlete to win a race is Mart Astley who won the Forest of Dean Night Enduro last weekend.  He totally smoked the whole field on a tough and pedally course and got fasted time of the day, beating the pro category riders as well as winning Masters.  Happy Days!!

I won’t lie to you – Mart was already pretty damn quick and fit when he came to me, however since working together his fitness is really improving and he is going to be at the sharp end at a few UKGE’s this summer as well as Epic Cymru and a few other races. This is what he had to say about our training:

“I started working with Ben back in November.  I’m a busy boy and don’t have a huge amount of time to train so I wanted to use what time I have efficiently.  Ben has created me a programme that works well with a busy schedule and means I’m using my time effectively.  Best of all, I actually look forward to the sessions which is something I have never done before….well maybe with the exception of nasty interval sessions!  It’s early days still but indications show I’m heading in the right direction, I’m definitely feeling stronger on the bike!”

Well done Mart and let’s hope this is the first of many podiums for MTB Strength Factory trained athletes this summer.
