The BWC SoCal Stage Racing Training Plan will prepare Athletes to achieve their very best Stage Race Form. It is designed to focus on the three most important aspects of stage racing, time-trailing, climbing, and sprinting.
Each of these disciplines is developed specifically and deliberately for the major SoCal stage races of Tour de Murrieta and the San Dimas Stage Race. It should be noted, that although not a SoCal race, this program includes a 'prep event' at the Valley of the Sun Stage Race, which serves as an equipment shake-down and solid three-day training event (note: alternate workouts are provided for athletes not racing Valley of the Sun).
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!

#1- This Training Plan is a 13-week program that includes a Build phase, various training races (Road Race & Criterium), and various Taper Weeks.
#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 for this Training Plan. 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.
