What does it take to be one of mountain biking’s elites? As XC World Champion Kate Courtney shows us, it’s not just about riding your bike. A typical week of training for the racer entails 15-25 hours on her bike and 3-6 hours in the gym. Then, she does it all over again until race day. It’s this kind of grit and tenacity that makes her such a beast on and off her bike.
