Plan Description

Have you ever wondered what it would take to go from racing one-day race events to stage races? This is the plan for you.


Stage racing is a whole different beast. If you've already done some single-day mountain bike events and want to challenge yourself at a stage race, this plan will get you ready. It includes structured workouts (that sync with your watch or cycling computer) to increase your threshold power, maximize fitness gains, and continue to build on the fundamental skills you’ve already developed. Having TrainingPeaks Premium (included with this plan) will be a game changer. Don't forget to include your email upon purchase so I can connect with you and sign you up for TP Premium (a $20/month value on me).


Benefits of This Plan:


  1. Expert guidance and training from one of the most experienced coaches in the business:
    • USAC (USA Cycling) Level 1 Coach
    • NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning Association) certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist
    • XPT (Extreme Performance Training) certified coach
    • 11 years National Team Coach for U.S. Paralympic Cycling
    • 4 years USAC Western Region Jr. MTB Development Camp Coach
  2. Coach to Athlete communication - By using TrainingPeaks, coach Mike can initiate coach to athlete communications giving you insights on frequently asked questions, training data, and providing monthly tips to help your training.
  3. FREE TrainingPeaks Premium account ($20 per month value) for the duration of the plan.
