"Jenn, we have done 3 stages this week at my facility! Amazing! So happy I bought the TDF studio package!"
"We did this ride (Stage 3) in the 8am Sat morning class and I believe it is my all-time favorite class, so we are doing it again!"
I taught Stage 3 this evening. What a creative profile…it was challenging and right to the point. If putting the ride together was fun, I cannot hide the excitement I went through simply reading her description of the ride. I am looking forward to putting it on the floor once again, and keeping it in reserve for many riders to come!"

Alpe d'Huez: One Rider's Journey from Suffering to Triumph
This is a very popular, dramatic profile Jennifer Sage originally created for WSSC and other conferences. It's unlike any other profile you've ever ridden. The story is delivered as if you are the mind of a domestique at his first Tour de France. He’s worked hard for his team the whole stage, and he fears he’s one of the last riders, not sure if he will make the cutoff time. He’s filled with emotion, he’s suffering, he’s doubting his future, he wants to quit. But then, he achieves a newfound vigor partway up the 21 switchbacks of Alpe d’Huez and ends up triumphant.
This very emotional and dramatic profile is now available as a BONUS when the entire five-year ICA Tour de France package is purchased. The profile includes all of the empowering cues that have left many participants in tears. Even when Alpe d’Huez is not a part of the Tour, this profile is a wonderful special class to offer your riders any time of the year. It is guaranteed to leave your riders with a heightened belief in themselves!
We received this comment from Izabela who not only has gained confidence to teach TDF classes, but she’s went gangbusters with it last year!
