2015 Tour de France - Stage 11

16. July 2015 - 7 years, 10 months and 24 days 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 - 7 years and 11 months 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.

Ironman Austria

04. July 2015 - 7 years, 11 months and 5 days ago

On 28th June 2015, Michi Weiss once again took the podium in 2nd place at his home Ironman in a time of 08:06:59 coming in behind overall race winner, Marino Vanhoenacker who also took his 7th Ironman Austria title. Arguably one of the most iconic events on the Ironman calendar, race day delivered great crowds, perfect weather and the usual super fast splits. Michi’s bike leg of 04:20:57 was also the 2nd fastest of the day coming right off one of his best ever Ironman swims and preceding a stellar 02:48:18 marathon. In this article I want to take a look in detail at the SRM power file of an athlete at the top of his game.

Man of the Hour

On Sunday June 7th, surrounded by thousands of cheering spectators in the sold-out Lee Valley VeloPark, Sir Bradley Wiggins rode his way into the Record books! Bradley rode 54.526 kilometers in, what has been referred to as, the "cruelest" hour, beating the current record by an astonishing 1.589 kilometers.

Ironman 70.3 Pays d'Aix

10. May 2015 - 8 years and 30 days ago

Beautiful yet relentless would best describe the Ironman 70.3 Aix-en-Provence bike route. It is 90km of constantly changing gradient, varied road surface with extremely technical flat and downhill sections, all of which present a test for which only the triathletes with the strongest legs and the best bike handling skills need apply. After a solid 1.9km swim, Michi entered T1 just over 3 minutes behind strong biker Andi Boecherer. and then put together a cycling masterclass to put himself firmly in contention. A minor recent injury flared up on the run putting paid to a podium but that is sports at the highest level. But now lets take a look at Michi’s SRM power file and I’ll try to unpack exactly what is required to nail the fastest bikesplit in amongst a field of very strong professional triathletes.
