When it comes to training Jason English is no stranger. He has had success in range of different types of mountain bike races.
He enjoys going fast and last year was ranked in the top few for the State Enduro Series!
He has has experience stage racing and has won the Alice Springs Stage Race, came second in the WA Cape to Cape and has won the Mountains to Beach 3 times.
In marathon races he has won or placed on the podium in most races at least once and has taken home the green and gold jersey on two occasions.
Jason is more well know for his 24hr racing where he has won the National Solo 24 Hour Championships from 2008 – 2014, the Solo-24 World Championships from 2009 – 2014, the Scott 24hr from 2008 – 2014 and just won the NZ National Championship for 2015.
With Jason and his wife Jen now sporting 2 kids, training needs to be more purposeful and time effective. While Jason has previously relied on his own crazy training methods and techniques his commitments off the bike are important to him (and so they should be!).
Jason has been using a Stages Power Meter for around 12 months on both his road and mountain bikes however his numbers have had no real meaning in training. Jason has a low power threshold and is working to improving this through his training plans.
Hopefully with a bit a purpose in training Jason will get to see some improving numbers and more of his family!
