Plan Description

Gravel fever 🌡️is sweeping the nation. Your friends are doing it. Events are popping up all over the place. The road scene was never cool, mountain biking is so mid-90s, and track cycling is confusing. Running has never tempted you.


You ordered Racing and Training with a Power Meter but are confused about what ‘wots’ are and ‘base’ and why you can’t just go out and train as hard as you can as much as you can while only eating rice crackers.


Don’t worry, the Summit Endurance Academy has got your back.  We put together a gravel-specific base plan for you so you can train the right way rather than repeating the same 10 workouts on Zwift.


🔥🔥What you get:🔥🔥



  1. BASE BABY BASE! - Build your aerobic foundation the right way. 

  2. Structured Workouts! - Because if you can't export your workout to Zwift, what's the point?

  3. STRENGTH! - Shoot us an email and we’ll give you a complimentary Train Heroic cycling strength program. 

  4. Clever Workout Descriptions! - We keep you laughing when you're in pain.

  5. Power-based Training! - Because who doesn't have a power meter now?

  6. Mobility workouts!- Learn how to touch your toes!

  7. 6,000-word guide! - We cover EVERYTHING, from equipment to nutrition to race tactics to life advice!

  8. Emails! - You can email us at matti@summitenduranceacademy.com and we won't ignore you.

  9. Scolding! - We call you out so you don’t have to learn the hard way!

I'll keep it short. I'm a coach with the Summit Endurance Academy. I believe in surgical workouts, epic days in the saddle, bison burgers, and a good Nøgne IPA. Yes, I own a costume box.

I think racing and training is crucial to living your best life, and living your best life is about looking back and seeing how much more Badass you are now than your past self.

Hit me up. Let's go beat the past together.
