In the mean time, for those looking to continue to challenge themselves during this “off-race season” time, I have a special 2-month time trial training plan I am offering for $179. This is a time trial specific training program that will be designed to improve your time trial ability and learn valuable tips for racing your best time trial. This training plan can start anytime between now until the end of April.
This training plan includes a performance analysis on one’s current training level. This will start a riders plan with a either base building phase or go right into more in depth time trial training. So, no matter what level, this training plan will benefit you!
Also, this training plan will include 2 performance power/time trial tests that can be self-tests or include the June 7-July 5th Florida Polytechnic Time Trial as a peak performance day. As an added bonus, riders that sign up for the training plan will receive a special discount to the rest of the 2020 Florida Polytechnic Time Trial Series.
Take advantage of the open roads and solo training to get in the best shape of the year! Feel free to share this post and contact me (Stevenacrossamerica@gmail.com) for beginning your training plan. Ride safe and stay strong!
