small reward for the hard work he put in this season!

Our "re-usable" flamme rouge 8 week Cyclo Cross In Season Programme has been designed for one purpose only. 

This comprehensive twenty-nine page programme will, over the course of eight weeks along with your weekend events or event simulation rides, take you from your early season fitness to new levels of form, speed and lactate tolerance.

Who's it for...?
If you've completed our 12 week Cyclo Cross Pre-Competition Programme or your own base/prep training period, you can use this programme to top up your mid-season speed, endurance and top end. 

You don't need a heart rate monitor or power meter for any of the sessions within the programme.  But if you have either of them, there are specific target zones and parameters within the sessions, for which you can aim.

What do I get?
You are not purchasing a "follow these instructions" training plan.   Our value-driven, "re-usable and re-configurable" programmes and manuals are the equivalent of small books, written just for you.  Our 20 week options are around 45 pages with our 12 and 8 week options 35 and 25 pages respectively.

You get all the information you need starting with, how the programme works (and why), access to an ever-growing library of Frequently Asked Questions, and your own personalised Heart & Power Zones and physiological markers.

There's a "predicted" Performance Timeline, an at-a-glance Programme Overview and a chart showing your forthcoming Training Load and Intensity Levels, allowing you to predict and track your fitness gains.

micro cycle

Each Micro Cycle has a clearly laid out plan of which sessions to tackle, when and at a level of effort that best meets your needs.  There is also a clearly defined list of the three objectives and benefits you will gain from the sessions you are undertaking.  If you are to give your all for these sessions, then surely it's important that you know why you're being asked to do them and what benefits you will directly gain from doing so.

flamme rouge programme

To complete the package, there are optional Gym, Weights & Stretching Workouts, and information pages on how best to prepare for road and turbo sessions, with further guidelines on Race Preparation and Recovery.

In short, you get a comprehensive breakdown on how to best prepare for whatever discipline, objective or event you have identified as important to you. 

How it works...
Once you've selected your programme, we'll send you a short questionnaire to complete and return to us. We ask for your min/max heart rate, and/or your VO2max or FTP wattages if you know them.

There's also a few other physiological questions about height, weight, age, available riding time, etc.

In line with your responses, we will personalise the programme's drills and sessions with perceived exertion levels, heart rate zones, power zones and cadence guidelines.

Start to finish process takes around three to five days.
