Plan Description


Faster, Repeatable, Stronger Rider

ZWIFT® is a great platform to use with this plan.

This plan is designed for the cyclist training to race criteriums and/or MTB races, as well as all facets of cycling. The goal of this plan is to develop your skills and abilities for the demanding physical requirements of criterium and MTB racing. Even though the last 10 weeks are focused on two areas, this plan will develop any rider into a better all around performer.

Through years of coaching and racing, I have found that criterium and mountain bike race training compliment each other very well. The final 10 weeks of this 28 week plan target the zones, intervals, efforts required to do well at these events. If you are a criterium racer, the road or trainer is your studio. For mountain bike racers the trainer, road and/or trails will be your studio. If you do both, then mix it up as your choice and have fun!

The plan is built by USA Cycling Level 1 Coach and Cat II road cyclist Paul Ozier. Paul is an Elite Coach at Peaks Coaching Group. Paul has over 25 years of racing experience and more than 15 years as a cycling coach. Athletes coached by Paul have excelled to new levels, set personal bests, won races for their first time, and taken home Silver and Gold medals in state championships.

This is a 28 week plan. This training will develop your power, repeat-ability, and a great sprint. Repeat-ability of zone 5 and 6 efforts are required for successful criterium racing and MTB racing. The ability to handle high power at high cadence that we so often experience in criterium and/or MTB racing is critical. This plan is great to build overall fitness that will also benefit all types of racing.

We recommend you have the following abilities before beginning this plan:
Cycling 2-3+ hours
Strong base fitness
Road racing and/or criterium race experience
Mountain Bike skills
