I love the guys at ASO. I came to them with a totally bizzare request (at least from their point of view) to license me only a few minutes of their race footage. Now, you have to know, they are used to licensing the ENTIRE RACE, either for a DVD or television or online broadcasting…whatever. But for a cycling workout video? I really thought it was going to be incredibly difficult to make it happen. But from the very first contact, Nicolas, my contact at ASO was simply fantastic. He listened, he was open, he understood the needs of thousands (millions? maybe?) of you out there to suffer miserably and he worked on finding a way to make it work. Today, they made me a very fair offer and I’ve accepted. Plus, they did it all within a matter of weeks. These guys work fast and I have to thank them for working with me on this.
Of course, most of you don’t give a rats ass about this and just want the new Sufferfests out. Not to worry – November is approaching. We won’t deny you.
PS. I also have to give a shout-out to Adam Bayliss, SufferFriend, who did Sufferfest 3, 4 and 5 all in a row in one workout. Insanse. Love it.
