Plan Description

About the Plan
Cyclocross Endurance Base - Summer Start - 12 weeks until Race Season Starts

This is designed for cyclocross racers who need a work on their endurance. This plan builds your consistency and fitness. It gets you ready for specific work ahead of cross season by increasing volume. Note that the plan does include intensity and ends with first cyclocross races.

For most traditional CX seasons it is best to start in May/June to be ready for more specific Cyclocross work and less volume as cyclocross races start to take up more weekends.

Is this Plan for You?

This plan suggests a mid-week rides 2 hours and weekend rides up to 5 hour, however, there are options to shorten or lengthen rides as your ability dictates.

This is an advanced training plan.

If you are very time limited or training indoors Consider our Best Selling Offroad Base 3 Month Plan

What Does It Include?
Any athlete can use this plan to focus specifically on riding more and building endurance. Specific work is done throughout the plan to work on interval training and coordination (high rpm)
Core is a 10 min routine with a lot of flexibility based on what you need (examples/downloads included)
Structured Downloads are included for some (BUT NOT ALL) bike workouts as some are better done more freely and without restrictions of a download.
You can use this plan by HR, Power or RPE (no device) - you do not need to use downloads as the title and description of each workout should allow for completion of the key elements of the workout.
The plan is 8-12 hours a week with options noted to extend or reduce as your schedule dictates
