Plan Description

If you're setting your sight on events such as Belgian Waffle Ride (BWR), Robidoux Rendezvous, Mid-south Gravel, SBT GRVL, or Wasatch All Road- this is the plan for you.


Gravel events are booming in popularity, and are becoming more and more competitive. This plan will give you the edge you need, not only to survive your 100+ mile race, but will prepare you to race at your absolute best.


Volume/intensity progresses throughout the plan in a science-based approach. Each training session is built as a structured training session, allowing for integration with apps like Zwift, Rouvy, and compatible with smart trainers. These sessions can also be downloaded to your head unit device to take your intervals out on the road/dirt.

This plan is for athletes who:
- Can train 8-10 hours per week,
- Have access to a power meter or smart trainer and heart rate strap
- Can currently ride comfortably for 60-90 minutes, non-stop
- Are ready to put in some serious work, dig deep, and have a blast

Each session can be performed either inside or outside, and can be exported to devices such as Bryton, Garmin, Wahoo, Zwift, etc.

Included in the plan:
- Initial testing protocol
- Strength and mobility sessions
- Sessions that build on each other from week to week
- Helpful articles, tips and tricks

With a background in Exercise Physiology, I believe in training protocols that are science-based and research-driven. My goal as a coach is to help my athletes apply the proper combination of training stress, intensity, and rest/recovery modalities that will result in peak performance conditions at their target events.

I don't promise success - you need to put in the work for that - but I do offer a plan to guide you along the way.⁣
