SoCal Road & Crit Racing Preparation: 12-Week Program

The BWC SoCal Road & Crit Racing Training is aimed to help Athletes achieve their best consistent race form. By managing recovery and dosing training stress amongst the myriad of early season racing options, this Training Plan ensures that the Athlete will arrive at the San Dimas Stage Race in peak form without the burnout that can be associated with a crit intense racing schedule. With so many events to choose from, this plan prepares the Athlete to be capable of riding both road and criterium events confidently by focusing on climbing ability, endurance, and sprinting prowess. As Coaches, we would like to invite purchasers of this Training Plan to 'attach' to our TrainingPeaks Coach Account. This allows us to include 'value add' services, like a power-test analysis, which sets the stage for the entire Training Plan. Also, by attaching to our TP Coach Account, workout volume will be adjusted based on racing category. Additionally, there are a few custom workouts that will be tailored by BWC once the Athlete purchases the Training Plan. It is our goal to see our Athletes progress, be successful, and achieve their goals. We feel a great way for us to achieve that is to be able to follow your progress! For more information or specific questions regarding this Training Plan or the services we offer, email us at or visit us at or Important Notes: #1- This Training Plan is a 13-week program that includes a Build phase, many races (Road Race & Criterium), optional workouts for those Athletes that choose not to race, and various Taper Weeks to ensure preparation for the upcoming SoCal Stage Races (Tour de Murrieta & San Dimas Stage Race). #2: The training zones associated with this Training Plan are almost entirely based on Power-Meter values, thus the use of Power Meter is very important. If you do not have access to a Power Meter, do not despair, the values can be adjusted to Heart Rate or Perceived Exertion if you 'attach' to the Big Wheel Coaching TrainingPeaks Coach Account. #3: This Plan includes a weekly section called 'Monday Motivation and Coaches Perspective', which discusses weekly training objectives, but also offers insight and inspiration for the week ahead. #4: A BWC Post Event Analysis work-up is included with this Training Plan following each race event. This document helps Athletes recount what what went well and what can be learned from their race experiences in order to help them better prepare for their target event. It is a very useful tool that our Coached Athletes enjoy utilizing in their training.
