I’ve just finished sweet spot base low volume. My ultimate aim is cyclocross with the 2021 season starting in September (would like to do better than previous years).
Using plan builder I’ve got short power build and cx specialty coming up followed by more sweet spot base, short power build and cx delivering me neatly in hopefully race ready mode at the beginning of September. However, I have other broader ambitions beyond just racing cx: riding centuries/fondos/sportives, fast rides with friends, a few multi day trips etc during the spring/summer.
So my question is whether the complete focus on short power/cx specialty is going to be to the detriment of my broader ambitions earlier in the year . I’m thinking of switching the first short power build to general build and the specialty to something else. Once they’re both done I’d go back into SSB/short power build/cx specialty to take me into cross season.
So what do you think? And if I do this what specialty should I go for?
Cheers in advance
