Conquering the Cobbles

10. July 2014 - 2 years, 7 months and 16 days ago

The highly anticipated Tour de France cobblestone stage from Ypres to Arenberg took place today under stormy skies with especially muddy and slick course conditions. The stage saw many crashes with defending Tour de France champion, Chris Froome (Team Sky), withdrawing from the race after a fall. Lars Boom (Belkin Pro Cycling) took the win while SRM teams continue to hold all leaders jerseys: Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) in yellow as GC leader, Cyril Lemoine (Cofidis) in polka-dots for mountains classification, and Peter Sagan (Cannondale) leading in points and young rider. Below is an SRM photo gallery from Amy de Wall capturing the days efforts and expressions.

July 06, Stage 2: York - Sheffield “It’s especially great to win on the anniversary of our namesake city Astana – it’s a national holiday in Kazakhstan today, and they also celebrate 100 years of bike racing,” Vincenzo Nibali shared after taking the stage win with a dynamic fight to the finish. Astana's Italian Champion claimed the yellow leaders jersey, while additional SRM sponsored riders, Peter Sagan (Cannondale) and Cyril Lemoine (Cofidis) took top position in Sprinter/Young Rider and Mountains Classification.

Tour de France Stage 1

05. July 2014 - 2 years, 7 months and 20 days ago

July 05, Stage 1: Leeds - Harrogate  SRM sponsored teams powered into all Tour de France jerseys today with Marcel Kittel (Giant-Shimano) winning Stage 1 for the Leaders and Sprinters jersey, Jens Voigt (Trek Factory Racing) launching a solo breakaway for Polka-dots, and Peter Sagan (Cannondale Pro Cycling) claiming the best young rider spot in white. The opening stage from Leeds to Harrogate was far from flat as it twisted and rolled on narrow English roads through countryside filled with cheering fans and yellow sheep. Trek's famous German veteran, "Jens Voigt, bolted away at kilometer zero with two youthful, brave souls, and together the three formed the first breakaway of the 2014 Tour. Inevitably, all three would perish to the rolling terrain and a focused, edgy peloton unwilling to ease off the accelerator, but not before ‘Jensie’ dropped his two companions and soloed over the final two categorized climbs to grab the lead in the mountains competition."

Proven in the Peloton

24. June 2014 - 2 years, 8 months and 1 day ago

24th Jun 2014 - NewsSponsors News (Tinkoff-Saxo) The SRM Training System doesn’t help us turn the pedals, but without a doubt, it makes us faster. To Tinkoff-Saxo, the watt measuring PowerMeter is a necessary tool and we use it in both training and racing. The SRM PowerMeter measures the watts – or power – that a rider puts into the pedals and transmits that data four times per second, thus giving a cyclist real-time feedback on performance. Riders and coaches use this data to program and plan training and to manage energy and effort during the race. The SRM PowerMeter was invented and first patented in 1988 by Uli Schoberer – a German medical engineer and founder of SRM. Later on, diversions of the technology have been put to use by other manufactures. But still, nothing beats the original, whose accuracy and durability is still without resemblance.
