The Wretched - Deep in the Tour de France Paincave

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

The Details:

  • How long: 48:00
  • What it’s about: A pure, attacking, climbing, fighting Tour de France stage
  • Best for: Those looking for a race simulation

Perhaps one of the most difficult Sufferfests ever made, The Wretched is the tale of a Sufferlandrian who has fallen from Local Hero to Zero. Now, faced with the final stage of the Tour de France, you need to remember how to Suffer and race with more courage than you’ve ever done before. You’ll be going deep into the paincave on this one….it’s a true road race: flats, attacks, climbs, descents, and sprints. And no rests. It will push you to the absolute limit – but then again, nobody ever said winning a Tour de France stage was easy.

Featuring footage from the 2011 and 2012 Tour de France, you’ll be up against the best in the world, including Evans, Contador, Voeckler, Voigt and Sanchez. Keep the bucket nearby. And don’t you dare lose that final sprint to the line.

Workout Details:


Unlike the other Sufferfest videos, this workout does not have a clear structure. But that’s how road races are – you have a general idea of what the course is like (see below), but you don’t really know how the race will unfold. So, The Wretched will keep you guessing – and anticipating what your rivals are going to do. You’ll never know when an attack is coming – and they usually come when you most wish they wouldn’t.

  • 7:00 warm-up
  • 35:00 Tour de France stage featuring flats, three major climbs, three very short descents, a valley and a rolling run in to the finish.
  • 4:00 Cool down


* Licensed only for individual use. (If you plan to use in a group or class
