To be good at cyclocross you must address both your fitness and your bike handling skills. This training plan addresses both.
This 16 week training plan is designed for a Cat 4/5 cyclocross racer who is planning to compete in the Chicago Cyclocross Cup series. This plan is for a rider who plans to ride 4-5 times a week and do races that last 30-45 mins.
This plan has been used by Cat 4 Chicago Cyclocross Cup series winners and Cat 4 State Champions.
This plan will build fitness from Early September (9/6) through Mid-December with the goal of peaking for the Illinois State Championship and Midwest Regional Championship and finishing up with the Afterglow.
