I mean strictly for time trialing. i have made it my life's goal to do a 40k in under an hour so i think i am going to devote all my training this year to meet that goal. so i was wondering if any of you guys knew of any resources for training that concentrated srtictly on that area. all else be damned. for now.

Mick Cooper, a long time masters time trialist in England has written an excellent annualized, periodized time trial-specific program. His website is You can purchase his complete booklet for about $20.00, I believe. There are also some excellent training and pacing articles at, which is the British Coaches' Association website. Some of Joe Friel's workouts are also time trial specific. Another source would be the training archives at As I recall there are some relevant Q&As there.

Fred Matheny's book on solo cycling:

Some of the training techniques haven't changed. It just includes a fair amount of good,basic info. The used books in the link above are cheap enough to allow it to be another tool you can use. I'd highly recommend it. has some good info, and some of the coaches are nationally ranked TT guys who are skilled at
explaining the concepts. Like most current training schemes, their focus is on training with power.

good luck,
thx for the replys. i will look into all of that.(nm)aet
