Something Wretched This Way Comes

We’ve wanted to make a straight-up road racing simulation for awhile. Something with no recovery and just flat out racing. When the ASO agreed to let us license footage from the Tour de France, we knew this was the opportunity we had been waiting for.

The Wretched is the story of a pro who has fallen from grace. The glory days gave way to days of over indulgence and now, faced with poor performance in the Tour so far, our hero must rise above himself and win the stage. A 10:00 warm-up, featuring a music video by UK band Redados, is followed by a 7 hour Tour de France mountain stage compressed into 35:00. In that time, you’ll have a flat-run up in which you’ll attack and attack and attack to try to get into the early break, three climbs with KOMs you have to sprint for, a breakway in which you have to swap on and off, an agressive run into the finish and a final sprint for the victory. And, oh yes, no recovery anywhere. None. Nada. Zilch.

Coming: December 8th.

    Okay, that will bring the total up to 13 for the 2nd Int’l Day of Suffering (if we count Downward Spiral remix and Downward Spiral original as 2). 17 weeks to prep, well 16 plus one week to taper. David – you planning any more between Dec 8 and March 31??

  • mark

    Are you kidding?? Great music? The workouts are great but the music needs help!! All the SF music needs help

  • Psyclosassin

    evidently Mark is either a music snob that has spent too much time as a college DJ while imagining his supreme sense of artful tunes, or he needs to eat a couple sandwiches after his Sufferfest workout. Dude, go be a tool elsewhere.

  • Tom Hoel

    You’re absolutely great moviemakers. My custumers(spinning freaks) go totally nuts onn their bikes, inspired and hoping to become Sufferlandrians.

    Midlife crisis. I cant sleep the night before I go to the gym at 5am. I’m actually looking forward to suffering. I’ve discovered my goal in life. to be in pain.
