Plan Description

You’ve bought 6-week plans, read training articles on Velonews, and maybe even suffered through a YouTube channel or two on how to train for your next Gravel Race.

A little voice keeps you up at night💤. You’re lying to yourself. You’ve done all this before. You’re sick of all the training hacks, it’s 2021, they’ll be racing this year, and you want to train RIGHT for once, not follow another ‘Gain 500 watts on your FTP’ training plan. 

But when are you supposed to do what? When do you lift? What the H@ll is a ‘base’? Should I just do VO2 max intervals until you spew🤮? Should you try the Carnivore diet?

Are you sick of making it up and don’t want to pay thousands of dollars to a coach? Gravel God: A Year in Gravel gives you the keys to the kingdom - an entire year of gravel-focused cycling training 💣.


  • 27 weeks of clinical periodization - Do the right workout when you’re supposed to.

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

  • Race Tactics! Skip years of making the wrong moves in races. 

  • Strength workouts - You’re not a roadie - you’re a Gravel Grinder - it’s OK to be ripped. 

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

  • Gravel Grit- Training your brain to navigate Life’s dumpster fires.

  • “This Is Gravel!” - Free ebook that covers literally every aspect of Gravel Racing, including how to drink 🍺and train!

And More!

Crunched for time? Can’t bother with building a ‘base’? Check out our Gravel God Beginner 3 - Peak Plan. It’s the fastest you can get in 6 weeks. 

27 weeks too much? Get started with Gravel God Beginner 1 - Base Period

Gravel God Cycling Coaching

I'm a cycling coach and writer. When I'm not helping my athletes get faster on a bike I write obvious, overlooked training content that makes cycling training easy to understand.

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.
