@cchappetta1: Honestly you made crashing look so freaking casual. Wish I had your confidence to pin it down the scary stuff.

Video: Test Your Fitness with this High Intensity Workout from Adam Brayton's Coach
Actually, I think there's pretty good evidence that interval training can get you most of the way there for power endurance. Especially for Enduro, where climbs aren't timed, that might be sufficient. (coming from someone who does lots of interval training and hates long climbs haha)

Study Suggests eMTBs Provide a Similar Workout to Regular Mountain Bikes Even Though They Feel Easier
I do a lot of heart rate based training, and 154 vs 144 is a major perceptible difference. Also, for intervals my program suggests resting to 140, then working to 155-160, so these relatively small differences are meaningful.

Study Finds Potatoes as Effective as Energy Gels
@hamncheez: this is a bit of a toughing, and I'm reaching a bit beyond my knowledge base, but I would wager it depends a bit on your riding. Riding in the fasted state will burn fat at the expense of, as you suggest, less strength and fitness gains. If you already are at a healthy fat % (which may be higher than you expect, and may not "look" super athletic) then its probably better to eat a bit first and ride harder. Gain strength and fitness. Here's a paper comparing aerobic and resistance training (and a combined regimen) for weight loss in middle aged adults. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3544497/ TLDR: Do aerobic training (xc rides with climbing!) as well as resistance training (weight lifting, demanding descents) for weight loss and lean muscle gains. RT will get you the strength gains but not the weight loss, and AT will get you the weight loss but not the strength gains. Eat healthy-ish (I keep a big bag of almonds at work for when I get snack-y) and cut out sugary drinks/juices/smoothies, especially because our bodies count calories from liquids less accurately than from foods we chew. Good luck!
