Beautiful yet relentless would best describe the Ironman 70.3 Aix-en-Provence bike route. It is 90km of constantly changing gradient, varied road surface with extremely technical flat and downhill sections, all of which present a test for which only the triathletes with the strongest legs and the best bike handling skills need apply. After a solid 1.9km swim, Michi entered T1 just over 3 minutes behind strong biker Andi Boecherer. and then put together a cycling masterclass to put himself firmly in contention. A minor recent injury flared up on the run putting paid to a podium but that is sports at the highest level. But now lets take a look at Michi’s SRM power file and I’ll try to unpack exactly what is required to nail the fastest bikesplit in amongst a field of very strong professional triathletes.0 comments views
Colorado Springs, Colo. (January 26, 2015) - The SRM Headquarters in Colorado Springs welcomes acclaimed cyclist, successful coach, and long-time industry professional, Colby Pearce, to the USA Sales & Marketing team. Pearce, known predominately in the past as a time trial specialist, was one of the first American professionals to train and race with the SRM Training System. He set the US Hour Record in 1995 and earned a spot on the 2004 US Olympic team on the track before moving to endurance coaching and bike fitting, working to develop the sport of cycling throughout the United States. “Colby, together with Greg Lemond and Jonathan Vaughters, was one of the first American professionals to use the SRM PowerMeter for serious training. He understood the advantage of recording more than only heart rate to analyze quality and quantity of training and track progress in increasing performance. Colby believed that training with Power would be the future of cycling more than 20 years ago.” – Uli Schoberer, SRM Founder SRM values the knowledge and insight Colby brings to the company through his experience with SRM both as a professional cyclist and as a coach responsible for the training and development of elite athletes.

Dieses Jahr wird das RoadBIKE-Trainingscamp von SRM unterstützt. Die Teilnehmer haben während des Camps die Möglichkeit sich Fahrräder mit SRM Leistungsmesssystemen auszuleihen. Auf den ersten Kilometern des Jahres, frei von Stress, können sich die Interessierten so in Ruhe mit dem Thema Leistungsmessung auseinandersetzen. Natürlich übernimmt das Team von SRM die Auswertung der Ausfahrten. Jeder Teilnehmer bekommt seine Daten auf einem USB-Stick zum mitnehmen. Da das Thema Leistungsmessung beim diesjährigen RoadBIKE-Trainingscamp im Mittelpunkt steht, gibt es natürlich auch abends Vorträge zum Thema Leistungsmessung. Das RoadBIKE-Trainingscamp findet vom 7. - 14. März 2015 in Playa de Muro - Alcudia, Mallorca/Spanien statt. Hier finden Sie alle Infos zum neuen Camp sowie den direkten Link zur Anmeldung.
