| Italy series virtual cycling DVDs: Speed and Power DVD
Other Italy series virtual cycling DVDs: Climbing Sufferage DVD, Urban Assault DVD,
Warm up to a video montage of the architecture, canals, and little shops of Venice. After you find your legs on a gradual climb, you?ll get your speed fix by riding along a quiet highway overlooking the Ligurian coast near Bracco. These two sections lead to a brisk riverside run in Valstagna along the River Brenta. The fast pace of these flat to rolling sections will be the perfect setup for the killer climb that awaits you below the mountain village of Rocco. Finally, cool down to a photo montage of the behind the scenes activities of the film and riding crew, and the places where they stayed.
Section 1: Blasting Through Bracco
Mild grades, flat sections, and ridge line views of the Ligurian Coast help complete the warm-up started in Venice. At around the 10 minute mark you can begin to feel the speed and intent for the day. This is going to be fast ride today.
Section 2: River Running
Through the magic of video, we are transported some 400 km away to Valstagna, in the Bassano del Grappa region, where we pick up a couple more riders, one by design, and one who just decided to join in on the fun. We continue the speed theme through all the little sleepy towns situated on the banks of the River Brenta. Flat to slight rolling terrain may be well suited to a nice recovery ride, but the pace set at the front will make you think twice about taking it easy.
Section 3: Rockin to Rocca
Consider the first 45 minutes one long warm-up to this final challenge. No matter how hard you?ve been working, this section will require just a bit more grit and determination. As we approach a popular climbing route for both local mountain bikers and roadies alike, we are presented with a couple of human ?carrots? already on the climb. Our objective now is to catch them, and put the hammer down so we maintain our lead to the top of the climb. Words to the final song say ?Now I am unbreakable, it?s unmistakable, no one can touch me, no one can stop me!?? providing just the motivation to push us to a strong finish.
This DVD also features a 30-minute bonus Pilates for cyclists section. When you own both "Oceanside Ride" and "Speed & Power in Italy" you will have a full hour of Pilates for Cyclists workouts.
