This plan is designed for the working class athlete who has limited time to train but loves to feel the pain on an extreme endurance event. If you are looking to win or set records this is not the plan you want. This plan is designed around a training schedule that has limited time. You can be successful and accomplish the race with this plan. But with the limited amount of training time, you have to have some expectation management. All of the workouts can be done on the road, trail, or a trainer. It is obvious that you should spend the most time on the type of bike you will be racing on during the program. But feel free to change it up and ride a different bike or course so the plan stays interesting. Go out, have fun, and enjoy the SUCK

I am a competitor just like you. Through years of trial and error, studying and discussing training techniques and programs I am ready to help out your everyday athlete. I know that looking through the pages of coaches on the website, it can be expensive. I want to give educated advice at a working mans price. I can offer advice on Race Prep techniques, Race Nutrition Techniques, and even Gear Selection. I can build a custom training plan with a few questions and feedback from the athlete.
