Xert Logo

With the addition of the P2A CENTO 100k route, P2A will pose challenges to riders that are opting for this longer route.  Many riders come for the enjoyment and for the challenge of completing it, whereas others come to see how well they can do against the others in the field, perhaps looking to make the top 50, 100 or 200 in the field.

If you’re serious about training and preparing for P2A, for any of the race routes, you’ll want to be training with a power meter and you’ll want to be using Xert. Xert is sponsoring the race this year, and the Xert Breakthrough Training platform will be your go to system to help you be ready to do your best on race day.
