Just in time for your holiday break, something to wile away the cold, dark hours in your torture chamber where, perhaps, you’re dreaming of warmer days, sunnier climes or racing season. Or, after hitting nine VO2 Max and threshold intervals lasting three to four-point-five minutes in an hour-long workout, you may just be dreaming of returning to your cubicle.

Designed by Apex Coaching’s Neal Henderson, The Sufferfest’s Nine Hammers shows exclusive on-bike camera footage from the Tours of Switzerland and Romandie and the usual assortment of UK humor and graphics that make them the best trainer videos on the market.

It’s releasing this Thursday, December 18th, alongside a remix of Angels, for a 24 hour special bundle price. Check out the racing that’ll crush you next, then get ready to suffer…

The original Angels video helped tune up your climbing power in 8-minute intervals. Now, the footage is better, the graphics are updated and the workout is, well, that’s mostly the same. Mostly.

Wanna just try them all? Sufferfest has a streaming subscription plan that lets you watch any of their videos at any time on virtually any connected device. Otherwise, most are $13.99 per video, all delivered via digital download.

“The original Angels video helped tune up your climbing power in 8-minute intervals while watching some of the finest professional women’s racing.”

Angels was not women racing, that was HHNF. Angels was Contador at Paris-Nice, hurting everybody !

(both are equally very hard videos, HHNF with 20 min intervals, Angels with 8 min ones)

Sorry if off topic – what turbo trainer do people recommend for sufferfest sessions ?

I’m using Elite e-motion rollers for the videos and love it. Just resist the urge to lean into corners along with the race footage.

@Jim – any trainer with resistance will work for Sufferfest vids. I prefer fluid trainers over magnetic ones, just because of how they feel, but try a few and see what you like.

If you ever want to get serious and use your trainer with TrainerRoad and their virtual power curves, fluid ones (Kurt Kinetic/CyclOps) are the better ones.

TrainerRoad is the jam (I have a powermeter too, but hear good things about the accuracy of their effort estimates based on trainer model). The downside to it, is that you see the timing mistakes in the Sufferfest videos. The plus side is, that in addition to giving you actual numbers to hit, the Sufferfest workouts in TrainerRoad have their own audio cues… which means that you can listen to your own music (I do not love the Sufferfest soundtracks). Hopefully the new Angels fixes the timing issues in that video (the third from last over/under is more like a minute and a half and a few of the mid-climb times are off) as well as that one spelling mistake. I do like the Sufferfest videos, I’m just always shocked when they have typos or timing problems. Oh well. Stoked for two (kind of) more.
