Etape du Tour Training Plan
Note that this content also appears in the comprehensive, 130+ page Guide to Tackling L’Etape, so if you have that you won’t need the Guide to Training for L’Etape.
Have you been Training for Etape?
Do you have a credible training plan, specifically designed for Etape?
Etape du Tour is not some run of the mill sportif.
It is an absolute epic undertaken that surprises many people in its intensity and difficulty.
Unless you’re already pretty fit (think B grade racer or better, or natural mountain climber), you can’t just turn up and “do Etape”.
Here’s a video I made for an Etape promo that explains why turning up without being fit, is folly.
Or that in 2010, fully 30% abandoned on or before the Tourmalet?
The Pain of Abandonment
I’ve seen people spend thousands of dollars travel halfway around the world to do this amazing event.
I’ve seen them spend a lot of time preparing for the trip. The excitement, anticipation.
…Only to fail to do any training.
Imagine spending thousands (or even hundreds, if you’re coming from the UK or nearby) on your dream cycling event in France.
Imagine toiling all day, often in searing heat, with thousands of other like minded cyclists.
Imagine battling up the heroic Cols of France all day.
…Only to abandon on or before the final climb.
Don’t let this happen to you
VeloNomad has commissioned one of the Best in the Business, Mark Fenner, to construct a training plan especially for VeloNomad Tackling L’Etape.
I use Mark for my own training and I can attest his skill in constructing a plan that will not only make you faster and stronger, but that fits in with your busy day-to-day life. Few of us have time to spend hours on the bike, so the training takes this into account.
Why Unnecessarily Suffer through L’Etape?
Why spend all that time and money going France and doing L’Etape without proper preparation? Madness!
If you think you need to spend hours on the bike, forsaking your personal life, then you’re going to be pleasantly surprised. With as little as 10 hours a week training with purpose, you will make a significant difference to your fitness and your enjoyment of L’Etape.
A custom plan like this would normally cost you AUD$200 or more, so save loads of money (80%) with this plan specifically designed for Training for Etape du Tour.
