Amstel Gold Race

25. April 2014 - 3 years, 6 months and 25 days ago

The Amstel Gold Race runs a total of 251 kilometers through the Netherlands and features 33 climbs as it twists and turns over narrow roads through small villages and massive crowds. This year it was BMC Racing Team's, Philippe Gilbert, who launched a solo sprint to the finish line and claimed his 3rd Amstel Gold victory. Gilbert credited his team - especially teammate, Samuel Sanchez, for perfectly executing the set up for his win. "They all did a very good job to place me in the best position," Gilbert said. "During the briefing, it was planned for Samuel to do an attack at the foot of the Cauberg. It was not a surprise for me, but I think it was one for my adversaries. I only had to wait for the best moment to attack. And I did that when it was most difficult and hurting for everyone." The performance team at BMC Racing Team provided the SRM race file from Sanchez who races at 181cm/68kg.

Ironman Melbourne

30. March 2014 - 3 years, 7 months and 20 days ago

Ironman Melbourne Analysis By Garth FoxMSc, Sports Science & Human Performance Following on from his win at Ironman Cozumel in December, Michael Weiss once again put on a cycling masterclass at Ironman Melbourne on Sunday 23rd March. He not only achieved the fastest bike split of the day in 4:20:50 but also the 3rd fastest marathon time of 2:45:17. His swim time of 52:39 left him trailing the lead group by just over 4 minutes but nevertheless represented a Personal Best in an Ironman swim. Overall he came 4th in a truly world class field in a time of 8:03:46, 2 minutes ahead of the three time world champion, Craig Alexander, and narrowly missing out on a podium place by only 30 seconds. Yet more progress and experience racing in an elite field.

BMC Racing Team Pre-Season Training

20. March 2014 - 3 years, 7 months and 30 days ago

The benefits of using a Power Meter are widely known and in the Professional peloton it’s rare to see a rider train or compete without some kind of data gathering device attached to their bike. At the BMC Racing Team we use the SRM Training System for the simple fact that it is the benchmark by which other power meters are measured. Its accuracy and reliability has been proven to us in extreme environments over many years of collaboration and as cycling enters this new age of science-based training, meaningful data is becoming one of the most important determinants of continued success. However it’s what you do with this information that can really make a difference. The following is a brief insight into how we are using SRM data to develop our riders along a logical physiological pathway; where the individual components of endurance, strength, power and speed are addressed with the appropriate dose delivered at the right time.
