This set of 10 ErgVideos is the pack you need for the free ErgVideo short-course triathlon training plan in its default minimum configuration. It features several of our best sellers, and focuses on power foundation development (threshold power) and progressively works toward endurance and max aerobic power development. Because your tri's are shorter and more intense than a long course tri, we include some higher intensity training with crit simulations to make you fast. The set includes some TT and tri ErgVideos for event simulation, and because, well, that's what you're into. Of course the Threshold Test HD is included to measure your progress. You can further configure the training plan to include more ErgVideos using the training plan tool.
Ride in the colorful forests of West Quebec, in rugged Canadian shield territory. It's autumn, and the colors are nearly at their best. Join time-trial specialist Ron Amos from the Ride with Rendall team on the new triathlon course in Mt. Tremblant. It's the same course for half and full-distance events, differing only by the number of laps. Ron lays down a steady effort on the rolling highway leg, and then the much harder hilly leg up to Lac Superieur evokes some more extreme efforts. With the stunning autumn colors as background, this could be the most beautiful ErgVideo so far. (2:24 hrs)
A fully automated and simple way to determine your threshold power, now in an HD edition. We've implemented a standardized time-trial test which begins with a programmed ErgVideo-style warm-up. You calibrate your trainer, and then you do a 20- or 60-minute time-trial test to determine your threshold power. Cycling centers can test up to 24 riders at once! You ride with National Masters TT silver medalist Ron Amos of the Ride with Rendall team on a Time trial course in beautiful Franco-Ontario.
The warm-up and test is functionally identical to the Standard Definition Threshold Test ErgVideo. This is shot with high quality HD video, a new rider, and on a different course. If you have been using the SD test, your results will not be changed or affected by using HD test protocol interchangeably. We did this so you'd have consistency and repeatability between the tests, but you'll get some visual variety in your testing if you have both ErgVideos in your collection. (1:26 hrs)
Les Mardis Cyclistes de Lachine (literally: "Cyclist Tuesdays of Lachine") started in 1978 with 7 riders and a stone to mark the finish line. Today it is one of the biggest regular criterium series in Canada. Quebec has a long tradition of supporting cycling and sports in general as cultural events, adding substantially to the unique character of the community and life in Montreal. Naturally, some of the best talent in Canada is incubated in this environment, and the top athletes on the Canadian pro-elite scene regularly frequent this series. Ride with Rendall's under-23 star Thomas Devisscher is your eyes and legs in this fast and flowing criterium ErgVideo. You'll learn a few things about cornering and clever timing to improve your position in a tight peloton. Just don't try some of Thomas' advanced inside dives on your first time out. Really. No..., look..., we're serious.... don't. (1:17 hrs)
This was a scheduled "recovery ride" gone terribly wrong. So wrong, it has been included as a hard tempo session in our HD Base training pack! After many hard days in the mountains, you'd think an easy day in flatter terrain would have been welcomed by our riders. The flatlanders among them felt some need for revenge, and what transpired was far from easy. This video has it all, from smooth and steady "through and off" pace-line riding, to jams up short climbs, and even some town-sign sprints. The roads are narrow, remote and the sunshine blazes down throughout. Like so many of your own club rides, in the final few km's, there's a real feeling of "well...that was harder than we'd planned!" (1:41 hrs)
During your base period, it's important to improve your power at threshold, and this Hi-Def ErgVideo is perfect for that. You'll join Greg Reain and Robert Orange, both multi-decorated national and provincial champs from Ride with Rendall, in sets of long leg-busting intervals. This video includes the ever-popular 2x20 minute intervals at threshold, as well as 2x10 minute and 2x8 minute sets. Mix and match reps and sets using the ErgVideo 3 ride designer to get your own "perfect" threshold-building workout. (2:06 hrs)
Follow 2009 national elite road champion Aaron Fillion and multiple provincial champion Nathan Underwood of Ride with Rendall. These guys don't hold back a single watt! Filmed in Gatineau Park at its greenest AND sunniest, we hit the big-3 major climbs over and over again! Choose from 3 minute Pink Lake, the 4.5 minute Black's Lake or the 6 minute Camp Fortune climbs. Hill intervals are recommended in all athlete's training plans to get some "punch" when the roadway points up. Inflict pain and suffering upon yourself or clients by creating custom rides to repeat the hardest hills in leg-busting combinations with the ErgVideo 3 ride designer. (2:01 hrs)
On a sunny spring day, a group of 4 elite riders from the Ride with Rendall, team take you out to the eastern Ontario cottage town of White Lake. They take it reasonably easy on the way there, and jam hard into the wind on the way home. This ErgVideo is excellent for base and tempo training: there aren't any aggressive attacks, it's mostly smooth, steady, and long. As usual, it isn't without its challenges here and there. This ErgVideo is easily adapted to your needs for Base (low zone) training as well as hard Tempo riding, using the new features in the ErgVideo 3. (2:50 hrs)
This ErgVideo is an excellent complement to the threshold intervals HD ErgVideo for all endurance athletes. With shorter and more intense intervals to increase your steady-state speed, it's a must-have for triathletes and time trial specialists. Four riders from the Ride with Rendall, team lead you in three different sets of intervals with 6-minute, 4-minute and 2-minute efforts just above threshold. Countless combinations can be created with ErgVideo 3's Ride designer.
2007 National Cyclocross Champion Greg Reain is back, this time with Ride with Rendall teammate Ron Amos, to lead you through interval sets on quiet sun-soaked roadways. These intervals are designed to build your max aerobic power. We all need a big VO2max, and here's how to get it. Four different sets are taken from the Guy Thibault/CCA playbook, choose from 30-second, 1-minute, 1.5-minute and 2-minute intervals all in the max aerobic-power building zone. Useful for all endurance athletes. Create many variations of sets and reps with ErgVideo 3's Ride designer. (1:55 hrs)
This is another one that triathletes and duathletes will enjoy. We follow Osmond Bakker and Detlef Hess on a scenic 40km gently rolling course in Calabogie Ontario. Events presented by the Almonte bicycle club. Two different tt styles are shown. You finally get to SEE Os Bakker and his powerful style. Detlef's race has real nail-biting drama with a head to head scrap with Erich Zappe, all the way from the turnaround! Very tense, you'll be cheering him on for sure. (1:54 hrs)
