OVERVIEW

If you were eating lunch, 8 minutes wouldn’t seem like a lot of time. If you were on a beach, it would be cruel to only be there 8 minutes. But during the 8 minute climbs in Angels, you’ll swear to every god you can think of that it’s never going to end. What other cycling workout video anywhere pits you against Vicenzo Nibali and Chris Horner in the Vuelta, puts you in a break with Thomas Voeckler in Paris-Tours or asks you to sprint against Simon Gerrans at the end of Liege-Bastogne-Liege?

(This is an entirely new version of one of our oldest, most popular videos. If you bought Angels in the past, you don’t need this version as the workout is the same. However, if you want new, better footage, more storyline, entirely new graphics and a couple of new tunes, then you won’t be disappointed.)

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

Soundtrack

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.

Praise

Pez Cycling News

“This really highlights how good the choice of footage and the editing is with The Sufferfest.”

Cycling News

“Overall, it’s one of most engaging and entertaining sets of indoor training videos we’ve come across and certainly far more interesting to watch than most of the other stuff currently on the market.”

Barn Door Cycling

“Angels gets the Barn Door Seal of Approval, it’s about 100 times better than just riding the trainer.  It has actually made me look forward to riding the trainer. “

Bicycling News Asia

“Let me tell you, you’re gonna climb, and you are going to suffer. You are going to get attacked from all sides. You will get a relaxing downhill filmed rest, then you are going to get hammered again.”

Quadrathon

“In case you have been living under a rock the Sufferfest are downloadable videos of real cycling footage with a kick ass soundtrack and a punishing schedule of intervals. Angels is not different!”
