UCI Straßenweltmeisterschaft: Teamzeitfahren

25. September 2013 - vor 5 Jahren, 2 Monaten und 14 Tagen

ORICA-GreenEDGE hat den Weltmeistertitel bei der UCI Straßenweltmeisterschaft in Florenz knapp verpasst. Nachdem sie 2012 die Bronzemedaille errangen, konnten sie sich diesmal mit 0,81 Sekunden Rückstand auf das siegreiche OmegaPharma-QuickStep-Team die Silbermedaille sichern. Das Team aus Brett Lancaster, Daryl Impey, Jens Mouris, Luke Durbridge, Michael Hepburn und Svein Tuft hat toll gekämpft und musste sich nur knapp geschlagen geben. Brett Lancester war so freundlich, uns seine SRM-Daten zur Verfügung zu stellen. Jeder kann sich so selber ein Bild über die Anforderungen eines Teamzeitfahrens an den Fahrer machen. Brett Lancaster, mit 80 kg Wettkampfgewicht kein leichter Fahrer, gewann 2004 mit der australischen Nationalmannschaft die olympische Goldmedaille in der 4.000 m Mannschaftsverfolgung auf der Bahn. Auf der Straße gewann er Etappen bei der Tour of California, dem Giro d´Italia und das Teamzeitfahren bei der Tour de France 2013.

New World Record Set with SRM PowerMeter

19. September 2013 - vor 5 Jahren, 2 Monaten und 21 Tagen

It came down to the very last record attempt of the week of the competition, but everything finally fell into place: Sebastiaan Bowier reached 133,78 km/h in the high-tech recumbent from students of the Delft University of Technology and the VU University Amsterdam. With this speed, he broke the world record and became the fastest cyclist on the planet. It was 0,6 km/h faster than the previous record, set by the Canadian Sam Wittigham. Team manager Wouter Lion elated: “We knew that the technical and the human aspect of the race were right today. We knew it was possible and it is amazing that is actually happens. And he did it with difficult head wind.” Alongside the new top speed of Sebastiaan, the second cyclist of the Delft/Amsterdam team also reached a world class speed: Wil Baselmans is with 127,43 km/h the third fastest man on earth, right after Bowier and Wittingham.
