With a maximum elevation of 171m or 561ft, Denmark is one of the flattest countries on earth, yet, it’s produced some of the world’s best climbers and cross country mountain bikers. The latest of which is Simon Andreassen who recently won an elite men’s cross country Olympic world cup round and today we are going to dig into his training to find out how a mountain biker from Denmark wins a mountain bike world cup race.

In this episode, we get down and dirty with 18 weeks of training before an elite men’s mountain bike world cup win - taking a look at the guy behind the training as well.  Plus - a core body temperature wearable - can you get big performance gains from knowing your core temp in real-time?
