Until now there was a gap in The Sufferfest’s irrestible cycling training videos. If like me you have a love/hate relationship with Sufferlandria then you may have had sessions where you finished wanting more. Where you needed a longer workout. Especially this winter – will this winter ever end?

Enter Blender. At 100 minutes long Blender hits that gap and hits it hard.

The Blender workout was designed by Neal Henderson, who coaches Taylor Phinney and is the Elite Cycling and Triathlon Coach at the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine.

As well as setting a new precedent for cycling training video length, Blender sees The Sufferfest’s graphics undergo a major overhaul. The suffering just keeps getting better.
