I have been trying more sufferfest workouts lately, and really enjoy the sense of humour of the creative department. Did Suff Idol on Friday, and the amusement definitely eased the suffering.
Out of curiosity, who are following cast of characters (and I am sure there are more since I have not done all the workouts):
Others to be discovered.
Billboard is always a favourite
Neh… Butter boy is better.
@sandman Nibali is The Shark - one of my personal favorites among the Sufferfest workouts.
Vincenzo Nibali - Wikipedia.
Which workout is this from?
Also features Big M, The Columbian, Gloworm and Bluebell
The Boss and The tracktor are from Suff Idol.
The Shark, Limecycle and Fireball are from A very Dark Place (I think)… the one on the Giro de Italia.
Butter Boy is from Butter but also makes a debut in Suff Idol.
Fireball is Darwin Atapuma.
The Tractor is Tim Declerq’s nickname:
Tim Declercq - Wikipedia
And is Jackson Rodriguez from the Venezuela team.
So far we have:
The Boss -
The Shark - Vincenzo Nibali
The Tractor - Tim Declerq
Fireball - Darwin Atapuma
Isn’t ButterBow Wout Van Aert?
Well at least in Cobbler WvA appears as Wout van Hurt. But maybe that’s just a cameo.
The Boss is Edvald Boasson Hagen. Like the Shark and the Tractor those are “real life” nicknames for those riders, while the others are just used in Sufferlandria.
Butter Boy is Wout, but I feel like Sep Vanmarcke also gets called that in a different video? I could be wrong, as false / missing memories tends to happen above threshold.
Butter Boy is WVA only in The Cobbler, but not in the Butter workout which was made a few years before that and WVA doesn’t feature in at all.
A couple of different riders get called Butter Boy in Butter I believe.
ISLAGIATT is still on my to do list
Get thee to a flogging station! Allez allez allez!!!
Outrageous!!! It is ride No1 on my Knighthood Quest simply because it is the longest qualifying workout (and is so very aptly titled)
