Plan Description

Many cyclists aren't sure how to transition their fitness from road/MTB into cyclocross form. There are many components to factor in - skills, running, plyometrics, intensity, volume, etc all need to work their way into a proper training program. Let us take the guess work out of the plan for you!

This 12 week plan will assist you in wrapping up your base and building a big aerobic (Hemi) engine, transitioning into variable intensities, then finish up with race-like outputs. We will include all of the variables listed below and manage fatigue throughout the program with 3 built-in rest weeks.

This plan will work best for those with few summer goals, with their sights set on cyclocross. Both intermediate and advanced riders (Cat. 3/4) can use this plan with no alterations needed.

Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Tucker directly at Tucker.d.olander@gmail.com
