The only way that you will learn what your weaknesses (limiters) are is to go out and race and see what they are. You then work on those. It could be climbing, sprinting, muscular endurance, power, etc. We do say someone is generally a sprinter or a climber but rarely both. Find out which one you are then work on the other aspects. Working on your weakness will make you better over all.
When to stary training all depends on when the important events of the year are. With that information you can better find out when to start training... rmember periodization.
Just your average club rider... :)
