12 Week Training Program - 1 & 3-day Velothon
Train Smart = Maximum Froth:
What does it take to ride and complete the Velothon. What are the demands of a single and multi-day events? What skills and fitness levels will you need to be able to line up on the start line and challenge yourself to be the very best you can be and complete the course?
The FTP Training Velothon training plans and packages are not just regular text written programs to follow. Each program has been developed using the training methodologies that we have used to help athletes from club riders just starting out to World Tour athletes tackling the Giro to achieve their personal bests and reach their goals.
Each program has been developed specifically for the event and to accommodate varying time availability for the athlete. Each program comes with all the vital knowledge and skills advice each rider will need to complete the 152km or 90km 1-Day Velo or each day of the 361km of riding with 5340m of climbing in the 3-day event.
The program is delivered via Today’s Plan the leading cloud-based prescription and analytics platform as used by Team SKY. Each program comes with a 3-month premium subscription where you will not only see your training for each day, but, be able to upload data into the platform and analyse your performance and fitness gains. Each week you will be able to access content videos and downloadable information packs. You will have the ability to join the monthly webinars where you will learn from the best coaches in Australia and you will be able to ask questions about your training and preparation for the event.

Who this suits:
The Bronze plan is a more specific structured plan that is for the rider who has done the event before or another event like it. This rider wants to step up and beat a PB or look to smash his/her mates. There is a greater focus on a result, but, also on learning more about training and racing and all the techniques to become a better rider.
Who this suits:
The Silver plan is provided using Today’s Plan and is designed for the rider who wants to be the best they can be. This type of rider always wants to be the very best they can be and loves to look at data and analyse what they are doing. This rider has a result focus, but, also wants to discuss their training one on one with a coach – 2 times over the training program – through the process and froths on learning more about training and racing and all the techniques to be the very best they can be.

NOT SURE WHICH PROGRAM?
What if I have little time to train?
At the Bronze & Silver package level, we can write you a program for a 6 hour, 9 hour, or 12 hour per week training availability. For most working athletes we don’t generally recommend training for any more than this – remember, we’re all about training smarter, not longer! Upon buying a Silver program, you’ll be emailed a questionnaire so we can customise our Velothon training program to you using Today’s Plan software.
What if I want more coach contact?
If you want more than the time offered of coach offered in the top level, speak to your coach after purchasing & we can offer an addition upgrade package to add more contact hours so you have someone to ask more questions, provide more support & motivation to get the Port to Port results you want. Otherwise, for a full custom solution & varied levels of coach contact, check out our 1:1 coaching options.
What is the difference between the Silver and the Bronze Plan?
The silver level upgrade has all the added value of the Bronze plan, but, takes things to the next level in terms coach contact. The Silver plan option comes with personalised interactions with a FTP Training coach. If you’re really looking to step up and understand more about what your capable of as a rider, get to the bottom of what the numbers mean in terms of power or heart rate, then this is the right choice for you.
Still unsure which level to buy?
We recommend buying the Silver package to begin with. It gives you 40 minutes of coach contact + a tailored training program that’s developed depending on your training availability (days of the week + hours – 6,9,12 hours in the week) If you have any further questions.
