This weekend, Michael van den Ham asked coaches what was a better use of your summer training time: Training specifically for cyclocross or racing in other disciplines.

Although the coaches he talked to agreed that racing was a better bet, we realize that there are riders out there who only think about cyclocross all year round. Apparently there is a new training tool to bring the fierceness of competition to your indoor rides. Retecool, who posted the above video on YouTube over a week before April 1st, revealed a simulator that brings the mud, heckling and rowdy spirit of cyclocross right into your living room.

We are still trying to figure out if the party’d-out spectator comes as a part of the package deal, or is sold separately.
