8 Weeks

Plan Description

This plan features a pre-season build for dedicated cyclocross racers. Those who race on the road or mountain bike during the summer months may just hope to carry reserve fitness into the cyclocross season, but a focused cyclocross may avoid these other activities in favor of a more central focus to their first love.

The nature of cyclocross includes repeated maximal efforts, often with incomplete rest from slow speed, as well as sustained high-resistance pedaling. Developing a strong foundation of fitness in the aerobic and lactate threshold energy systems along with muscular strength is a great help more cross-specific training routines.

This 8-week plan will help you maximize your baseline fitness before shifting gears to address race-specific skills or energy system in our cyclocross race-season plan.
