    This is my 3rd ride CD from the guys at success. I find the overall quality fantastic including; really good training content for you to engage with and follow, a good sound track and of course “Good weather on every ride” These are great alternative for my training programme it saves staring at my Garmin screen night after night.
    I would highly recommend this product

    This video definitely helps with turbo or static bike training giving a good insight into riding these climbs. They’re well filmed and smooth and the HUD info about the gradient, intensity etc is very informative. A little more encouragement from these would be good – such as a flag for the 5 and 1 km to the summit points – where red flags would give you a bit of a lift rather than maintaining the cool informatic format. The soundtrack’s pretty good, not too intrusive but quite trancy which aids the effort. I’d like a bit more tailoff at the summit, so at least some of the downhill is covered – as that’s the reward for the climb and you see lucky riders zipping down past you as you climb. A climb and the descent would be a big enhancement for me. The viewpoint is fixed for the whole ride and obviously some alternative viewpoints would be great and add variety but that would involve a “virtual” rider visible from other camera angles, but I’d prefer this in a limited way – shots of the pedals turning, wheels on the tarmac, view to the side etc. You’d want to be careful not to dilute the strong appeal of the ride point of view though. These are great training aids that I’m sure will get better as it gets easier to mount GoPros or small cameras at different points on a bike. As well as driving up the course to film it, a couple of bike rides with such camera angles to supply shots to cut in with the main sequence, would give the video producers a wider range of footage. This would give the videos more variety over repeated viewings and a longer lasting appeal. These videos are really great though – and can only get better!
