With the growth of virtual turbo-trainers, it’s no longer neccessary to travel to warm weather training camps to rub shoulders with current and ex-pro riders. Now, thanks to Bkool, you can share the ride and never leave your front room/garage/pain cave!
Spanish company Bkool are pleased to announce that Jan Ullrich will star in their next Challenge ride on Thursday the 17th of December. The route he’ll be riding is called Tour de France 2015 S18. You’ll be able to see it in the ‘Live’ section on the Bkool simulator. Jan will be setting off at 18:30 and at only 29Km should give you a chance to chat with the ex-TdF champion, so plenty of time to brush up on your German!
Stage 18 of the 2015 Tour de France included the climb of the Lacets de Montvernier. This amazing road seems to twist it’s way up the side of a mountain, in a seemingly never ending series of hairpins and you’ll be pleased to know that at kilometre 15 you’ll get a chance to winch your way up, just like the Tour!
Simon reviewed the Bkool trainer and simulator a while back (here)and he is still using it. He liked it so much that I got one and must admit that I am well and truly hooked! I often finish a session and start looking for another one to ride, something I would never do before on the turbo!
