Pro Rides- awesome!

Just did my 1st pro ride- hammer chase 1… awesomeness!!! I liked Norway & team scream in Sufferfest, but this takes it to another level! So good- loved the race overview section at the beginning- really helped set the stage/ explain things and helpful cycling knowledge/ learning for people like me who are still newer to cycling. Kept me entertained and suffering the whole way through (had to hit pause a few times w my recent higher 4DP #s). Was v cool when they flashed up the pros numbers on the screen - to see how strong they really are!

If you haven’t tried a pro ride yet, definitely recommend it. Thx for this cool new content! Was perfect for a rainy day.

@lule +1 - did Strade Bianchi. Really enjoyed it! I look forward to trying the others.

This is my biggest problem with SYSTM…

Too much new content I want to try, but I’ve committed to a couple of back-to-back training plans to run into the Christmas break.

The urge to either break plan or over-train just to see some of the new content is STRONG!

@JSampson thx! Will check it out next. I was deciding bw strade and hammer chase 1 and went for the shorter one today :rofl:

@Jon ha! Good problems to have!!

@Jon Yeah - agreed. Well the new calendar does allow you to delete and replace some workouts in your plan if you can find similar rides among the new content.

I am sort of done for the season with my last major race out of the way. After a Full Frontal I will be on a mission to check out as much of the new content as possible and of course earn some badges.

@Jon @lule A Filippo Ganna TT anyone that would make for an interesting Pro Ride me thinks

We might have something soon (:crossed_fingers:) that would see you trail Pipo G. by just over 1’30 over 15km TT. Would that still be OK?

As long as Wahoo supply the jet engine I can put on the back of my bike to catch him :dash::dash::dash:

That would be hilarious to see the numbers Ganna is hitting in a TT versus us mortals! :joy:

Strada Bianca was awesome. I still want a second Strada with the final climb to the finish included.

The best thing would be if they got parts of every stage of all 3 Grand Tours, now that would be brilliant

I’d love to see some different disciplines, eg, MB, cyclocross.

Can you imagine trying to pace Lizzy’s breakaway at PR. My legs are hurting just thinking about it.

Bring it on, we can name it ‘Mud Spa Day’

I now have an image of the app tellming me to get off my bike and stick my Kickr on m shoulder so I can run up a CX hill…

Seriously though, that would be great. I dont MTB or CX irl but they can only add for greater potential for the app and choice of videos.

@Erik-KOS Could you imagine getting a camera on some of the Velodrome rides whether it was the Team Pursuit or the sprints ?

There’s a whole range of races that could be used and it would be exciting if it wasn’t just road racing but CX or MTB or even in the Velodrome all 4 would require different burst of watts for each discipline as cameras now can be the size of a pin
