2015 Tour de France - Stage 13

21. July 2015 - 4 years, 6 months and 26 days ago

The analysis of Stage 13 (Muret to Rodez – 199km/2000m) was kindly provided to SRM by David Bailey, Ph.D., Sports Scientist and Performance Coach with the BMC Racing Team. The team had identified Stage 13 as a target for Greg, along with Stage 4 and 8 from the first week in Northern France. The team’s first objective is always to protect and support Tejay but Greg’s inclusion in the team was based on his ability to go for stage wins that suited his physiological attributes. Specifically, stages that require explosive sustained power similar to the one day classic where Greg has performed consistently well in the past.

2015 Tour de France - Stage 12

17. July 2015 - 4 years and 7 months ago

Today’s file is from Dani Navarro of the Cofidis team. Cofidis rides FSA K Force Light cranks equipped with SRM power meters. This power meter was developed as a special collaboration between the companies, to make use of the hollow carbon fiber crankarms.  Stage twelve was 194 KM and included four categorized climbs, including the Hors Category Plateau de Beille, which tops out at 1785 meters above sea level. Many riders mentioned this climb in media interviews before the race, indicating the difficulty of the stage.

16. July 2015 - 4 years and 7 months ago

Twenty-eight year old Astana ride Tanel Kangert was kind enough to share the data from his SRM power meter after stage 11 of the Tour de France. The Astana team rides SRM power meters that integrate with the Specialized carbon fiber S-Works crankset. The result is a featherweight scientific instrument designed for the hardest racing in the world.

Tour de France | Stage 5

09. July 2015 - 4 years, 7 months and 7 days ago

Tour de France stage 5 was announced as a sprint stage. The peloton had to cover 189.5 kilometres between Arras and Amiens on a course without any hills. The wind could be an extra factor in that region. It did play its role, but eventually the stage ended with a bunch sprint. André Greipel won the stage, his second victory in #TDF2015 and reinforced his lead in the points classification.
