Training and eating for Gravity Enduro racing?

hello,

I want to train for a year as I've come out of injury to my ankle, and I'm ready to train for gravity enduro races but I don't know what to start on and how to train and what to eat, could i please have some help as i want to get back on my bike. I used to be quiet fit as i could run a 10km race in 45 minute 51 second so I can put the effort in to getting fit. Thanks Zach

I don't imagine it's any different than training and eating for ordinary road or MTB riding. For which there are about 8 zillion websites and discussions which can be found on this forum and all over the web. Plus books.

Gravity enduro takes a great deal of core strength and the ability to do many intervals at the limits of your resources. If you can't ride off-road yet, hit the gym with lots of reps at low weight focusing on core strength and flexibility . Conditioning your calves/forearms for standing/sprinting for 10 min at a time is best done freeriding or something like that. Ride the spin bike and work on balance and good form.
