The flamme rouge Early Competition Performance Programmes, are a tried and tested, pre-configured, series of on and off the bike, drills and sessions, that require, and offer, no coaching interaction.

This programme comes in four discipline-specific targeted versions.  Each tailored to meet the needs of the rider or event.  We currently have a...

 Road Programme
 TT Programme,
 Sportive Programme
 Criterium & Circuits Programme

If you have a sporting need that you feel doesn't fit in to the above categories, drop us an email and we'll see what we can do for you.

Who's it for...?
If you are confident in following a dedicated programme, designed specifically for you, to get you from "fast to (possibly) win" in just eight weeks, then this is the product for you.

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

What does it cost?
The price of this Performance Programme is just £20 (approx US$33). 

What is the duration?
The duration this Performance Programme is 8 weeks.  But, as with all our programmes, you can reconfigure it, to be used as many times as you wish, to run from whichever date you wish.

Race Yourself Fit?
As the early season events loom, it's important to be "race ready" and try to pick up early season licence points, start honing your TT PB speeds, or get your mind and body ready for those epic sportives.

Some rider just "race themselves in" to the early season.  But having followed a rewarding and productive structure through the winter, why leave the early season events to chance?

Don't have your training dictated to you by the whims of others.  Set the pace, don't follow it.  Pain is so much more rewarding when you're dishing it out rather than reacting to it.  Prepare yourself well; get a programme!

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.

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.
