This plan is recommended for Experienced Cat 4s, Cat 3s, and new Cat 2 road racers who are focusing on circuit races and road races 2-4hrs in length. A heart rate monitor is required. Power is not required, but it is recommended. Typical weeks will be around 10 hours of training, with recovery weeks around 7 hours of training.
This plan is for those who have already completed base training and have a solid level of general fitness heading into the racing season.
During the 8 week build phase the emphasis will be increasing threshold power, speed, and your ability to attack. The plan concludes with a two week taper before your A priority event.
