This 10-week CX (cyclocross) plan is designed to prepare advanced-level road or MTB racers for the demands of CX races. The plan includes many high intensity on bike workouts. Start this plan 10 weeks before your goal race or season kicks off. Each week is 6-14 hrs worth of workouts, with scheduled rest weeks. For best results, before starting this plan, a 8-12 week base should be completed if you have not raced and trained throughout the summer. If coming off a road or MTB race season, allow for 1 or 2 weeks rest/transition before starting this plan. As an advanced level plan, this plan features both block training formats late in the plan and some “two-a-day” workouts. The plan is intensive and designed to push you to a peak.
Included with your plan
