Epic Beartooth Pass, the newest in the epicRIDES virtual cycling video series has been released by epicPLANET.tv.

Epic Beartooth Pass takes you on a virtual training ride on the legendary Beartooth Highway and Pass out of Red Lodge, Montana with cyclists from Montana Cycling and Ski of Billings, Montana.

Known as one of the hardest bicycle hillclimbs in the world, Beartooth Pass, Montana is a breathtaking stretch of US 212, which connects Red Lodge & Cooke City, MT. - the hard way, by scaling the BearTooth Range. 32 lakes can be seen from near the almost 11,000 foot West Summit, this is truly on "Top of the World".

This training ride includes over 4,000 feet of climbing with a constant grade of 6% and is one of our toughest, yet most beautifully immersive virtual cycling experiences!

The Beartooth Highway and Pass is an All-American Road that has been called "the most beautiful drive in America," by late CBS correspondent Charles Kuralt. This ride was also a segment on the noted Continental Tour held by Rapha sportswear.

This 60 minute DVD includes a new "Just the Ride" menu option which gives indoor trainers, coaches and instructors a choice of either 60 minute and 45 minute versions of the ride to fit their training or class requirements.

As with all our virtual cycling DVDs in the epicRIDES series, this DVD includes a free, downloadable Training Guide and matching PowerProfiles for programmable bicycle trainers such as the Computrainer and the CycleOps Power Beam Pro.

Epic Beartooth Pass sells for $29.95 and is available as a DVD or a Digital Download on the www.epicPLANET.tv web site and at retailers around the U.S.
