Ironman World Championships

18. Oktober 2014 - vor 3 Jahren, 4 Monaten und 26 Tagen

Ironman World Championships - Kailua-Kona, October 11th, 2014 On a day that many were calling the windiest and most difficult bike day in the last 15 years of the Ironman World Championship on the Big Island, Hawaii, SRM sponsored triathlete, Michael Weiss, posted a bike split of 04:33:35. In a stacked field that included all the best Ironman athletes on the planet, that was good enough for the 6th fastest time of the day and that even included a rear wheel puncture while riding at 60km/h just 15km into the ride which took Weiss approximately 5 minutes to repair without race support, damaged his speed/distance sensor and effectively killed his chances of catching the leading group right then and there. Thereafter Michael battled the swirling winds over the infamous lava fields entirely alone making for a long hard day in the saddle. Even so, he still managed an average of 294W (306W normalised power) for the duration and in so doing expended 4770 Kcals.

Pikes Peak Cycling Hill Climb - Colorado Springs, CO This is the same course that the International Auto Hill climb has been using for 85 years. Cyclists negotiate over 154 turns and climb over 4,700 feet in 12 miles to reach the summit. The epic ascent combined with bone chilling temperatures, 40 mile per hour winds and a dense fog limiting visibility at the summit made this year’s event a true challenge to every rider! coscycling.com SRM athlete and Colorado Springs local pro, Kalan Beisel, shared his SRM data from the day's adventure.

La Vuelta a España Stage 13

08. September 2014 - vor 3 Jahren, 6 Monaten und 9 Tagen

Vuelta a España stage 13 was from Burgos to Cantabria. A hilly 187km route that included a thigh burning 24% incline for 700 m. The race featured an early breakaway of 11 riders taking off from the peloton to tackle the challenging course and was reduced to only five riders with 30km remaining. The last uncategorized climb saw again nearly twelve riders sprinting for the finish which included top contenders, Contador, Froome, and Valverde, but it was the Spanish climber, Daniel Navarro (Cofidis), who made the gutsy attack for the biggest win of his career to date. Cofidis became an SRM sponsored team this year in conjunction with the launch of the new FSA K-Force Light UCB (User Changeable Battery) PowerMeter.

Ironman 70.3 North American Championships

03. September 2014 - vor 3 Jahren, 6 Monaten und 14 Tagen

Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant, North American Championship, By Hunter Allen With a new baby, a new bicycle company (Dimond bikes), and training, TJ Tollakson is one professional triathlete that has to train efficiently and effectively.  He cannot afford a wasted minute in his training and maintains a training discipline that many envy and few can follow.  He uses two of the most important tools in training and racing to help him achieve great success, like his recent win in Ironman Mont Tremblant, and those tools are his SRM Training System and TrainingPeaks WKO+ software.   “My SRM is so important, and I mount the PC7 right on my handlebars, so I can look at it without moving my head or position a single bit. I look at my SRM almost the entire time and sometimes it feels like I am a Jedi knight controlling my power and heart rate just the way I want it.” TJ also uses TrainingPeaks WKO+ software to analyze his power and pace data and has a clear understanding of his power data and metrics. "I look at my Performance Manager Chart obsessively inside WKO+ and know what my FTP is at all times. TrainingPeaks WKO+ software gives me the confidence to race smart and do the perfect pace for my FTP."
