This plan is best applied 8-12 weeks ahead of your goal of XCO-cross-country mountain bike race under 3 hours. It focuses on developing speed and off-road proficiency.
Ideally, you will have completed a general preparation or 'base' phase to establish fitness and cycling skills before this more specific block of training. It is appropriate for riders who have raced and trained before (intermediate/advanced)
I have an 'offroad base' plan in the training peaks library as well
The plan can be adjusted from ~6-15 hours per week, more restrictive or larger volume plans are best done as 100% made for you 3 month plans (see below)
Workouts provide options for outdoors or indoors depending on your location and weather.
It includes guidance for heart rate and RPE and occasionally power but is very focused on MTB riding fast so power is not emphasized or required.
Please feel free to email me firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For $99, I offer 3 months 100% Made For You Plans, which often works better as it takes your schedule, goals, equipment, and abilities into account https://consummateathlete.com/training-plans/
