XC Training: Roadie new to MTB

Thinking of doing some roadie climbing/ century events on a 29'er. How do you XC guys train? Cross over to road events (particularly climbing events) on the 29'er make sense?

I'm thinking of doing one in December just to get the feel for a long ride on a 29'er.

Right now training is 70% road bike, the rest on MTB (mostly long climbs).

Any books like Friel's 'Training Bible' for XC MTB?

Is there a website for XC racing in SoCal?
