I expect this question has been asked before but I can’t find an answer that covers it…
I race both Crits and Road Races but am not sure which are the best Build and Speciality plans to follow. I am a relatively heavy rider at 83kg and having had a few weeks off, an FTP of 300 watts. I hit a max 5 sec power this season of 1400 watts so I am naturally more suited to Crits but during the season I found that whilst I could nearly always make a break in road races, staying with it or being a useful participant was always a struggle.
Am I better off doing a plan that focuses entirely road races considering where my weaknesses lie or should I try and do a bit of both e.g. Sustained Power Build followed by Criterium?
Thanks in advance. I love the podcast, forum and training plans (basically all things TR).
