SRM's Tour de France Highlights

Superior Performance Requires Superior Training!

The 101st Tour de France was one of the most challenging and memorable cycling events in recent years. Twenty-two teams raced over 3,600 kilometers enduring wind, rain, hail, and heat as they conquered mountain passes and navigated technical terrain through peloton pandemonium.

This year’s peloton showcased many new eye-catching updates; teams sported new kit colors, next generation frame designs, chic helmet shapes, and techie handlebar accessories for capturing “inside the race” video footage - but one dramatic theme remained unchanged: SRM powers the peloton!

In a year when the power meter market grew considerably with more brands positioning themselves in professional cycling, SRM continues to be the choice of the world’s top riders, trainers, technical directors, and sports scientists. With nine WorldTour teams selecting SRM as their official PowerMeter and six additional teams racing with SRM, nearly 70% of this year’s pro peloton was pushing #SRMpower.

Paolo's SRM-Power Perspective...

“This year's Tour de France has shown that in addition to a strong team of athletes led by Grand Champion, Vincenzo Nibali, a modern cycling training program is fundamental and indispensable for the ultimate achievement of objectives.

Astana's success is possible thanks to the SRM Training System: a true "black box" for myself and the riders. We combine athletic talent, imaginative strategic coaching, and SRM accuracy for winning results and world class performances.” -Paolo Slongo, Trainer (Astana Pro Team)
