The Wahooligan Tour STAGE 1: The Sufferfest - Cash Register + Revolver

The Wahooligan Tour STAGE 1: The Sufferfest - Cash Register + Revolver
Sunday March 12

Welcome to Stage 1 of the Wahooligan Tour. Please use the thread to tell us about how your Tour is going so far!

A ride to honor the man himself, Davis Phinney, Cash Register is a series of over/under intervals, where you alternate going just below and just above threshold, which is the foundation of many classic workouts. Cash Register is an adaptation of that idea that comes in the format of a sprint/settle/surge session consisting of four intervals that get a little shorter (but not easier) each round.

Second up, Revolver. The simple idea of going hard for one minute and then easy for one minute, and then repeating, has been around since whatever evil genius realized that intervals were the best way to train. There is a reason this simple session has stuck around: it works.

Remember, you have 50 hours to complete each stage. As long as it’s still today’s date anywhere on earth, you’re golden. Check out the Tour Challenge Page for details on stage open and close times.

You never ride alone.

I did the thing. About half way through Cash Register I was starting to doubt myself, but then Revolver felt pretty good. 1 stage down, 6 to go! (not looking forward to stage 6)


And here we go!


Woo hoo using 50 hr window to get as much tour in official hours as possible… so…. Going in…

Chasing froomy and Co was fun… and celebration on finishing with my tribute to Davis and my Signed Jersey from last yeat! Thank you Sir @SirJoe

Then to always my favourite Revolver… attack face

Left it alll out there

But every victory counts…


Yay @DameJo! Way to kick us off!


Stage 1 in the books! Tough but perfect start with cash register and DPF !!!


Now it’s a Tour. Thanks for the victory pose Dame Jo!


ahhh, the faces of suffering. :heart: :heart: :heart:


My favorite picture of fluffy.
Cash register was a great warmup for Revolver, and it was nice to see Davis P, MVDP, and Wout as I look forward to others suffering during Holy Week.


When you say NO GRAPHS, I may have found a loophole…

Here’s my stage 1a experiences…


We are live on Twitch right now:

General rule is a $10 donation to DPF for every graph posted unless they’re funny. I will leave it to the graph police to determine whether your graph has met the humour threshold. I am humourless :wink:


Stage 1 complete. All under the watchful eyes of coach Mr. Bear. He was unimpressed.


Cats. Such jerks!!!


Stage 1 of my first Tour done! So much more enjoyable having the company of @TrapMeSuf, @JSampson, @DameLisa and J.Butts on RGT - Bedankt, thank you! It was comforting to know I wasn’t alone in my suffering, even though we were scattered around the world.

I can also confirm that Dame Lisa did indeed don the goat suit. I am sure the suffering was immense - I expelled copious amounts of Sufferlandrian Holy Water, wearing more suitable attire, so I can only imagine what the suit was like after the ride…
