Hi. Welcome to the sport and to the forum!

Have you read most things on the first 2 pages in this forum? If not, I'd start there. That will keep you busy for days/weeks.

The signal-noise ratio is very high here and there is a lot of good content.

Asking for a training program is too open-ended to get a good answer. That's like someone with their only post in a food forum writing, "What should I cook for dinner?" without offering any context, contents of the fridge or cabinets, diet preferences, skills, or tools.

Specific questions get better answers.

Here's a good thread to get you started: Protips for a new track racer

If you don't know what to do and you don't know what you don't know, then read a lot first, then ask specific questions here: Ask your small, random, track-related questions here

You can start by riding your bike regularly and cleaning up your diet (if needed) to increase your general level of fitness.

There are no dumb questions. We were all in your shoes at one point in the near past.

I'm not shooing you off. I'm saying that you have a wealth of information here and no one is gonna hold your hand. We'll hope and expect you to read a bit first then ask specific questions.

Here's a thread I recently started that speaks mainly to endurance event training and thoughts. Are you more of a sprinter or enduro (or do you not know yet which is a perfectly acceptable answer)?
