Cyclocross Intermediate - 8 week Race Preparation
Josephine NoackAll plans by this Coach
Ready to race cyclocross in 8 weeks!
The plan provides a perfect preparation of 8 weeks leading into your racing period.
This plan is the right one for you, if you already have some cyclocross experience or raced in another cycling discpline like road, crit, mountainbike or track. Triathletes with a strong cycling performnce can give it a try too. For less experienced athletes or those who want to try cyclocross for the first time, we suggest to try our 'cyclocross Beginner'-plan first.
Ideally you have a strong base from riding lots during the summer months and also some experience with HIIT from the last build period. It's no problem if you don't have both, but one of them would be recommended. Otherwise we suggest to reduce the HIIT-volume a bit.
The plan can easily be adjusted to your individual needs. If you want more because you are used to a high volume, you can add or lengthen endurance rides / segments of workouts. But make sure thy're low intensity (Z1/ Z2).
The plan includes some off-the-bike sessions. Feel free to add more, if it helps your performance or injury prevention, or if you are a triathlete or just like to run, swim, ... But keep in mind that the bike sessions are quite demanding and to really benefit from them you have to be fresh and recover afterwards!
