Please note that the Sufferfest is now part of Wahoo SYSTM. Lame as that might be, the bigger problem is that most of the links I inserted are no longer valid. You will (always) land on the SYSTM start page. Also, I no longer have a TrainerRoad account, so (most of) those links won’t work either…
For as long as I can actually do them daily, I will put up a short post race report on all stages of the 2014 Tour of Sufferlandria.

There is a reason I have avoided Violator and today confirmed I was right in doing so.
Many people seem to like it, probably (mainly) because of the 64 recovery intervals.
However, as I suspected, this doesn’t apply to me – maybe if I’m well rested I can do a better job of following the line, but not today.
I just kept on pushing during the 5 second intervals, because there simply is no way I can accelerate and slow down between 30+ and 60+ kph repeatedly during that time frame.
The longer intervals were better, but suffice it to say I’m feeling violated…
