You know that ride you’ve done where you thought you went harder, deeper and to a darker place than you’d ever gone before? Well, this takes you further, deeper and darker than that with offically licensed footage from races like Paris-Roubaix and Liege-Bastogne-Liege and featuring pro cyclists like Phillipe Gilbert, Fabian Cancellara, Thor Hushovd and Bradley Wiggins. Like our Downward Spiral and Revolver videos, A Very Dark Place is about maximum effort for shorter durations: in this case, 4:00 intervals.

Designed to help you improve your top speed over short distances – covering, or making attacks, getting over those steep short hills and powering down the other side or taking a big pull at the front of the breakaway.


  • 5:00 warm-up
  • 2×30 sprints
  • 1:30 rest, because we’re not totally merciless
  • 5 x 4:00 intervalswith 3:00 rest between each interval. Each interval has its own aggressive personality:

    • Small group breakaway in Fleche-Wallone
    • Joining Gilbert and the Schlecks as they attack in Liege-Bastogne-Liege
    • Following Cancellara – and trying to beat him – in Paris-Roubaix
    • Holding onto Wiggins and crew in the Criterium du Dauphine
  • 4:00 recovery with some vintage cycling footage
