Ironman Cozumel 2014

06. December 2014 - 12 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.

The Speed Record with SRM

19. November 2014 - 29 days ago

The hunt for records has always fascinated people and is a driving force behind technological progress. The cycling world offers a variety of time and distance records, with the Hour Record most popular today. As the recent achievements by Jens Voigt and Matthias Brandle have shown, these performances are no longer conceivable without the use of power meters. Performance data provided by the SRM Training System has proven to be essential in training and preparation as well as during the official record attempt. With Gold Standard precision and scientifically proven accuracy, SRM has been the choice of all athletes with 'record setting' inspirations!  Most recently, the Velocipede team of University of Liverpool, has incorporated SRM in their research projects and are now benefiting from SRM's 30 years of knowledge and experience in power measurement application.  The ULV team consists of eight enthusiastic engineering students. In a two-year project they want one from a human-powered vehicle (Human Powered Vehicle, HPV) construct, with the current speed record may be surpassed flying over the 200 m. Currently, this record is the men at 133.78 km/h and for women at 121.81 km/h! There is an SRM Training System Science aboard the ARION 1, as this HPV is named. The data obtained by the SRM will help to advance and improve the performance of the vehicle. The next record attempt will be set up at the World Human Power Speed Challenge in September 2015 in Battle Mountain, United States.

Ironman World Championships

18. October 2014 - 2 months 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.
