If you are new to road and criterium racing (crits) then this plan is a great introduction to this discipline. It has no more than 5:30 hours per week training & can be completed with a minimum of heart rate and cadence monitors. This plan presumes you have at least four weeks riding completed before starting, if you have not ridden this much consider doing a short body prep phase prior. Position on your bike will be crucial. You should consider having a professional bike fit prior to starting the plan. Then setup a mirror as your train to ensure you can hold the desired position. Get a friend to video you on the road or while racing, check you're racing in a similar position to your training. Technique will also play a massive part. If possible join a local Go-Ride club skills session or check out your local race venue to see if they have any. If you can get a friend to video you then you can analyse technique such as sprinting and group riding later. This plan comes FREE with Direct Power Cycling Team membership (, you can get the code from the DPCT Facebook group or email We would love to hear how you get on!
