Ironman Cozumel 2014

06. December 2014 - 3 years, 3 months and 13 days ago

On Sunday 30th November 2014, SRM sponsored triathlete Michi Weiss was crowned Ford Ironman Cozumel Champion for the second year running. His winning time of 08:12:16 set a new course record and contained the best bike split and second best run split of the day. Notable achievements indeed when you consider that this was his twelfth triathlon race in a 12 month racing period that included 4 full Ironman’s and 3 Ironman 70.3’s. In this article I want to describe the year-on-year (YOY) comparison between the Cozumel SRM power files in order to explain what it takes to put over 20 minutes into a class field of pro triathletes, and also look a little more closely into the files to gauge what, if anything, a long, hard year of training and racing has changed about the way that Michi races on the bike and how SRM power file analysis can be used to influence training and  get the best out of an athlete.

SRM an Bord bei der Jagd nach dem Geschwindigkeitsrekord

19. November 2014 - 3 years and 4 months ago

Die Jagd nach Rekorden hat Menschen schon immer begeistert und ist ein Antrieb für technologischen Fortschritt. Auch im Radsport gibt es zahlreiche Rekorde, wie den wohl Bekanntesten, den Stundenweltrekord. Wie die Rekorde von Jens Voigt oder Matthias Brändle gezeigt haben, sind diese Rekorde ohne den Einsatz von Powermetern nicht mehr denkbar. Sei es bei der Arbeit im Vorfeld oder beim Rekord selber, die Leistungswerte sind essenziell. Aufgrund der hohen Messgenauigkeit sind die SRM Trainingssysteme dabei die erste Wahl. Umso mehr freut es uns, dass auch das Velocipede Team der University of Liverpool (ULV Team) aus Großbritannien auf uns zugekommen ist und nun von unserem fast 30jährigen Wissen im Einsatz von Powermetern profitiert. Das ULV Team besteht aus acht begeisterten Studenten der Ingenieurwissenschaften. In einem zweijährigen Projekt wollen sie ein von einem Menschen betriebenes Fahrzeug (Human Powered Vehicle, HPV) konstruieren, mit dem der aktuelle Geschwindigkeitsrekord über die 200 m fliegend übertroffen werden kann. Derzeit liegt dieser Rekord bei den Männern bei 133,78 km/h und bei den Frauen bei 121,81 km/h! An Bord des ARION 1, so der Name dieses HPV befindet sich ein SRM Trainingssystem Wissenschaft. Die durch das SRM gewonnenen Daten sollen helfen im Vorfeld die Entwicklung des Fahrzeugs zu verbessern. Während des Rekords werden die Leistungswerte dem Athleten bei seiner Rekordfahrt helfen    Der neue Rekord soll bei der World Human Power Speed Challenge im September 2015 in Battle Mountain, USA aufgestellt werden.

Ironman World Championships

18. October 2014 - 3 years, 5 months and 1 day ago

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.

La salita di Pikes Peak

11. September 2014 - 3 years, 6 months and 8 days ago

La scalata di Pikes Peak in bicicletta – Colorado Springs CO
Questo è lo stesso percorso in salita che è stato protagonista per 85 anni dall’International Auto Hill. I ciclisti hanno deciso di percorrere più di 154 curve con una salita di più di 1432.56 metri da affrontare in 19.9 km per raggiungere la vetta. La scalata epica, abbinata a temperature agghiaccianti, a 64 km/h di vento ed ad una fitta nebbia che limitava la visibilità, hanno reso l'evento di quest'anno una vera e propria sfida per ogni ciclista che vi abbia partecipato! Coscycling.com
L’atleta sponsorizzato da SRM e professionista locale di Colorado Springs, Kalan Beisel, ha condiviso con noi i dati ottenuti dal suo SRM il giorno della grande avventura.
