Customer Reviews

Nowdive ,

I don’t race, but train to ride fast!

Love the TR software and this podcast, just confirms the dedication that went into creating this software.

I ride sportives and fondos, and just ride out in general. I love it when i go fast. Using TR indoors keeps me fit and makes me faster outside.

5* double rainbow all the way :-)

Butlerpower ,

Awesome podcast and an even better training platform.

80'er-levn ,

Informative and fun (If you're a training nerd :-)

Very clever people.
