Hello, I’m a firs time poster in this forum however a longtime reader. Firstly I’d like to thank all of the Trainerroad staff and members for the amazing information in this forum, its helped me a lot.
I’m an ex professional BMX racer that’s now taking on criterium & road racing. I have a good sprint and am looking to transfer that power into longer efforts.
My seasons are;
Criterium - 1st Jan to 28th April (already started)
Road - 1st May to 1st November
I’m riding around 400kms (250mils) per week at the moment which is split into longer rides, sprint training & climbing.
Last year I completed base, build & specialty phases and went from a 252 FTP to 312FTP around 4.2w/pk.
I’m looking for feedback on the below plan(s) that I think will take me to where I need to be for the year;
Sweet spot base 1 - 6 weeks
Sweet spot base 2 - 6 weeks
Sustained power - 8 weeks
Climbing road race - 8 weeks
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
