Plan Description

Thanks for checking out one of my training plans! I'd love to start working with you.



Use this plan to prepare for the epic challenge that is the Unbound Gravel (formerly Dirty Kanza). Apply the plan so it ends on the day of the event (in 2021, June 5th). Normally, this means the plan will begin in late March/early April, if you need another plan to get to that date, consider my other plans or the Training Plan Unlimited (monthly subscription gets you access to any plan in the library and 1-on-1 consultation to assist in selection).

Midweek rides are kept manageable in duration (mostly < 2hrs), while you will have one progressively longer weekend ride. Total hours per week maxes out at just under 16hrs.

If you have the flexibility in your schedule, you can add some volume, but don't sacrifice the planned intensity for additional volume. While you will be on the bike for a long time on race day, the intensity is what will break you down.

Use the longer days to dial in your equipment and nutrition. You'll need to put down a ton of calories on race day, and training your gut is important too.


Trouble deciding?

Not sure if this is the right plan for you? Confused about how to string together multiple plans or pick a plan for multiple goals? The Unlimited Training Plan Subscription might be the right answer for you. For a monthly fee you have access to all Winkler Cycling training plans and regular consultations with Coach Winkler to pick the right plan and keep your training on track.
