Time Trial Training Plans

+ free coach support

Improve your TT performance with detailed and flexible training plans specialized for a time trial, from a qualified coach and former professional.

  • What is a time trial?

    An individual time trial (ITT) is a type of road cycling race in which cyclists race alone against the clock. Other types of TT's are team time trials (TTT), and track time trials. 

    Time trials can be a stand-alone event or part of a stage race, where your TT time is factored into your general classification (GC). The distances of time trials can range from 1km to 50km or more. 

  • How do you prepare for a TT? 

    Training for time trials is a combination of a specialty training focused on improving your highest sustainable power at a steady pace above your threshold while completing technical, mental, and race preparation aspects.

    Two months is the ideal amount of time to start specialized training for your time trial event. You should have now completed a base training, and start speciality training for a time trial.


Outcomes of the plan

Improve your time trial performance from psychological, physiological, and technical aspects. At the end of the training plan, you'll have:

Improved Anaerobic System

Improve your threshold power (FTP), and operate at high intensity for a longer time. Your body will be able to tolerate and eliminate lactic acid more effectively, achieving higher performance and faster times.

Steady Pacing

Improve your time trial by maintaining a steady power for long periods. This translates in faster time trial times, while maintaining the same average power output. 

Smooth Pedaling Technique

Pedaling efficiency is crucial to ensure that you get the absolute most power from each revolution. By including cadence workouts, we make sure you’ll be producing more power for less energy.

Choose TT Training Plan That Fits You

Pick a time trial plan that fits your cycling level, the number of hours per week, and the length of the plan you want to commit to.

    • I have worked for month with Jakub using his tailored plan. I was very out of shape at the time. Jakub's plan built me up in steps, and was hard when I needed it to be. Later as I became more fit he adjusted the plan so I was challenged, but my fitness continued to build and my training desire stayed high. His plan was able to see me attain top 10 in my age group at SBT GVL Black, Oregon Trail Gravel Stage race and 17th GC at Rebecca's Private Idaho Gravel Stage Race. I highly recommend Jakub.

      The progress is unbelievable! 4+ months ago I did something that I’d never done before. I reached out for advice, and I listened! Despite starting racing in 1976, racing internationally and on National Teams, I’d never believed I needed 1-on-1 coaching. I was drifting along not achieving anything. After 47 years I finally admitted I was wrong. Working with Jakub Novak has been a great experience which has changed me for the better. He has focused on me with clear goals and objectives. His knowledge, approach and advice are supportive and my improvement is all very visible. Having now podiumed at Nationals, it’s off to ride the UCI Gran Fondo in Glasgow. None of this would have been possible without Jakub’s support and guidance. This is only the beginning, working with Jakub we will achieve much more.

      Jakub's plans have had almost instant results for me. In three months of consistent training, my FTP has increased significantly, along with my fitness and general feel on the bike. The plans have been interesting and varied so I haven’t got bored once! Over a short period, the program has allowed me to go from hanging onto a B grade crit to getting a podium in my first A grade road race. Can’t recommend this plan highly enough.

    • “It’s a pleasure to work 1:1 with Jakub. He is a coach that takes the time to understand what you want to achieve and tailor a program that suits your lifestyle. I have learnt so much about the fundamentals of cycling, where he takes the time to explain why we are doing certain blocks of training and the results we will achieve. Additionally he is always willing to provide tips and ideas on all things cycling (e.g race tactics, nutrition, recovery, cross training) Since working with Jakob the last 3 months I have increased my FTP by 30 watts and improved all aspects of my cycling which has seen me move up to racing B grade. Highly recommend Jakub for anyone looking at doing a structured cycling program, with a personal touch and guaranteed results.”
