PCG training plans are battle tested and podium approved

Tour of the Battenkill is one of the more unique events in the US in terms of its demands. You are going to have to be ready for VO2 efforts on the gravel, big gear work, hard accelerations, and of course you’ll need the threshold power and muscular endurance to get you to the finish line in the front group. These plans are designed taking all of these unique demands into account–and they will prepare you for a top performance.

Designed and written by Hunter Allen, former pro cyclist, co-Founder of Training Peaks and WKO, co-author of Training and Racing with a Power Meter and Cutting-Edge Cycling and Founder and CEO of Peaks Coaching Group. The workouts included in these pioneering and ruthlessly vetted training plans are the same workouts that Hunter uses with his own clients.

Each plan includes:

  • FREE Premium TrainingPeaks Account (30 Day Trial)
  • Exclusive access to PCG Coach moderated private training plan group on Facebook dedicated to you!
  • 100% refund if not satisfied within 30 days of purchase
