With spring weather here, I can’t manage to stay inside to train. But, if it’s still too chilly in your area to get out and ride, this may be of interest. Plus, only 500 of these limited edition DVDs are stocked if you’re proactive for training next winter. Produced by Cyclefilm and Cannondale, Roads to Glory Alpine Edition spans 65 minutes taking the rider 140 km through the 2012 L’Etape du Tour Route Acte 1: Albertville – La Toussuir. This stage features Col de la Madeleine, Col du Glandon, Col de Croix de la Fer, Col du Mollard, and La Toussuire. If unfamiliar with this race, here’s a link.
