Can't speak much for XC racers but I've seen a blog about Matt Hayman's career analysis, if I recall correctly I remember seeing him do weeks of 1200+ TSS. Not sure how that translates to CTL, but I guess that's what it takes to win Paris-Roubaix.

wow, is it so low for those xc guys?
110-130 is pretty darn high. A CTL of 120 at an average intensity factor of 0.60 requires an average of 3.3hrs of training per week. That is an average training week of 23hrs.

That is a lot of training.

CTL is also based on their level of power, not ours. Just to get that CTL number means they are working HARD to get that stress.

I'm about 100 right now. I was at about 120 last year this time. It isn't easy. Though, I think my FTP might be slightly lower right now, so even harder to get that CTL up...
