With a recent update to work with Wahoo’s more affordable Snap, TrainerRoad promised a further revamp to their desktop software this fall. Now, you can grab the beta version for Windows and give it a test ride.
The updated version will offer new or improved features like Video Rides, Training Plan Selection, Support for CompuTrainer, PowerBeam Pro, Cycleops 300/400 and legacy Elite trainers, and Social Sharing.

Their cycling-only training plans will get a boost soon, adding triathlon plans with running and swimming workout notes built onto the cycling portion. They’re developed by in-house tri coach Chad Timmerman.
Lastly, they’ve launched the Ask A Cycling Coach podcast, giving you the chance to ask them anything and have your answers come in a weekly podcast. Hit up their Blog for links to the episodes with topics lists.
