Great Dun Fell - Training Video
The Great Dun Fell turbo workout is fully integrated with TrainerRoad too. Check out the power profile for the session below, and make no mistake this is a tough climbing workout. Great Dun Fell is 11/10 in Simon Warren's Classic 100 Climbs series and is quite possible the greatest climb in Britain -so you'd expect it to be tough.
Following a 15 minute warm up you'll be straight into a 37 minute threshold climb. Climbing around 2000' over 7.4km with an average gradient of 8% you might think you're heading to the Alps. Once you start climbing though, you'll find that the gradient varies and it's much more like a Pyrenean climb - but with ramps over 20% it's much steeper.
This really is one of the very best climbing workouts in the UK and as the end approaches you'll be praying for the Radar Station to come into view.
This is your Ventoux, your hill top finish, will you crack? Or are you ready? It's time to find out!
