    Getting a jump on the big climbs this season using the new TurboVids real life video rides and the
    Tacx i-Magic trainer.

    Phil Stone (the guy who posted some useful info about mounting the Polar Power Kit a year or so ago)
    has made a bunch of video segments that cover the Marmotte course and a bit more, for a total of
    190km of video riding.

    This isn't just another ride-along with disconnected video. The TurboVids are synchronized with the
    i-Magic brake unit which varies the resistance according to the terrain you are seeing. Hey, when
    you need to train for climbs but the outside is frozen over, inside you can still blowup your heart
    over some friggin' steep video climbs. I'm finding it a lot of fun and a useful when I want to
    really push my limits. Great for sustained efforts at LT and higher.

    Phil has a demo Galibier video on his site for download. As this is just a demo, the playback speed
    is set to go very fast, but you can slow this down in Media Player to the point where you can read
    names painted on the road.
