This 12 week plan is made for any racer in the Category 2, 1 and even Pro categories planning on racing in TOB.
This plan is comprehensive and is built on hundreds of hours of power analysis, race comparisons, data capture and past successes of the athletes I have coached.
This training plan is made for cyclists or triathletes who train with power, heart rate, or perceived exertion. We have provided testing protocol and explained how to set your training zones within TrainingPeaks. That will allow you to know exactly where you are starting with the plan and provide the correct information for testing in the future.
The Tour of the Battenkill is most likely one of the most unique races in the USAC racing calendar in terms of its demands. You are going to have to be ready for VO2 efforts on the gravel, big gear work, hard accelerations, and of course you'll need the threshold power and muscular endurance to get you to the finish line in the front group. I have built this plan taking all of these unique demands into account and it will prepare you thoroughly well for a top performance at TOB.
This is not a plan for the mediocre or pack filler. If you want to take it to the next level and ready to put in the work, then this is your plan. Be ready for some unique workouts, be ready for some hard workouts and be ready to do the workouts.
You'll need between 13 and 20 hours a week to play with in order to get all of the work done in this plan.
Get this plan now and I know you'll enjoy the guidance, workouts and plan as it will bring more focus to your workouts and also let you in on the secrets to succeeding at TOB!
