You know that ride where you thought you went harder, deeper and to a darker place than you’d ever gone before? HAHAHAHAH. This takes you further, deeper and darker than that with officially licensed footage from Paris-Roubaix, Criterium du Dauphine and Liege-Bastogne-Liege. You’ll be up against pro cyclists like Phillipe Gilbert, Fabian Cancellara, Thor Hushovd and Bradley Wiggins. A Very Dark Place is about maximum effort for shorter durations: in this case, 4:00 intervals that take you to the limit.
Designed to help you improve your top speed over short distances – making attacks, getting over short hills or taking a big pull at the front of the breakaway.
“I knew right away when the interval began and the video transitioned from the smooth asphalt to the rough, dusty cobbles with a kicking song playing that I had found something special.”
“Each of the five intervals is different and there are various events from spring classics cobbles through to climbs of Le Dauphine. No punches pulled, these are all HARD.”
“I rode it at about 8pm last night. It took till 11am this morning for me to recover enough to write about it, the trainer mat is still wet and I don’t think my downstairs neighbours like me anymore.”
“For anyone who trains indoors and wants to make the most of their time on a turbo trainer without getting bored, The Sufferfest is essential.”
“There is a little bit of everything for everyone to generate that bitter, acidic, metallic taste in you mouth!”
“To be honest, I don’t really remember much about intervals 2-4. In that time my heart relocated itself somewhere behind an ear and my face spent much of the time about 2 inches away from the stem.”
“Overall it was awesome (in a painful, I want to cry out for mommy kind of way)! The music that is used always rocks! The commentary eggs me on to beat my ass way more than I would if I was just spinning away.”
“As with any of the Sufferfest videos, you will want to get back on your bike and kick your own ass in AVDP to prove to yourself you are not weak.”
“The race footage is gorgeous and well-chosen (segments with a great solo win in Paris-Nice and following Cancellara in Paris-Roubaix show a particularly good editing touch) and the soundtrack is appropriately intense.”
