Angels: Sufferfest Cycling Training Video

Individual Use - $12.99 | For groups & classes, see our Group Edition.

The Details:

  • How long: 62minutes
  • What it’s about: Threshold work and climbing
  • Best for: Handling repeated changes in tempo while climbing

If you were eating lunch, 8 minutes wouldn’t seem like a lot of time. If you on a beach, it would be cruel to only be there 8 minutes. If you were doing one of the 8 minute climbs in Angels, you’d swear to every god you can think of that it’s never going to end and that you’d rather chop your legs off than go through another second. What other cycling workout video anywhere pits you against Alberto Contador on Alpe d’Huez, puts you in a break with Luis Leon Sanchez in Paris-Nice or asks you to stay with Andy Schleck when he makes his winning move in Liege-Bastogne-Liege?


Workout Details:

This is what Angels delivers in just slightly over 60 minutes:

  • 6:30 warm-up, featuring footage from track racing in San Diego
  • 10:00 of over/under intervals, with 1:00 just above your threshold, and 1:00 just below threshold
  • 3:00 rest, featuring some beautiful descending footage from
  • 8:00 climbing, while you try to stay with Andy Schleck in Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
  • 4:00 rest
  • 8:00 climbing, with a gradually increasing pace up the famous Col d’Eze in Paris-Nice, featuring Vockler, Contador, Sanchez…yeah, all the big boys. There are a few accelerations in the group that ask you to increase cadence without increasing effort….which can be a little tricky, as you’ll find out.
  • 4:00 rest
  • 8:00 climbing, with the mother of all climbs: Alpe d’Huez…can you stay with Contador? There are about a bajillion attacks that push you so far into the red that you’d swear your eyes are bleeding.
  • 4:00 warm down
* Licensed only for individual use. (If you plan to use in a group or class
setting, you need our Group & Class Licensed Edition available here


It opens up with a bit of funkish, then into alt-rock, then a bit of dance, more alt-rock and some techno. Something for anyone who likes great music.
