Ironman 70.3 Timberman

28. August 2016 - 5 months and 29 days ago

SRM sponsored triathlete, Michael Weiss, raced Ironman 70.3 Timberman as a key training stimulus for October's Ironman Kona. A solid swim performance, the day’s fastest bike split with a new course record and a controlled half marathon ensured a stellar 2nd place overall with a finishing time of 03:49:22, only beaten by former 2x short distance Olympian Tyler Butterfield. Race day temperatures were ideal and directors ruled a non-wetsuit swim for pros. In the swim Michael immediately found a rhythm exiting the water after 26:20 in 11th position only 2’20” behind the top group. Once on the bike course, he immediately moved up through the field, eventually taking the lead with a course record bike split of 2:01:44. The Austrian pro arrived to T2 in first position going into the half marathon and was eventually only caught by race winner, Butterfield. Weiss finished second, saying “this was probably my best IM 70.3 performance to date!”  Now let's take a closer look at the SRM data.

Clasica San Sebastian

04. August 2016 - 6 months and 21 days ago

The World Tour Classic, a 220-kilometer run through the Basque hills, all came down to the last, steep climb where four riders emerged at the top of the 1.8-kilometer ascent with gradients exceeding 20 percent: Mollema (Trek-Segafredo), Valverde (Movistar), Gallopin (Lotto Soudal) and Rodriguez (Katusha). Mollema, knowing he didn't stand a chance if it came to a sprint, caught the other three by surprise by launching an immediate attack with just over eight kilometers to go. [Trek-Segafredo]

Stage 1 - Tour de France 2016

03. July 2016 - 7 months and 23 days ago

Stage 1 - Mont-Saint-Michel - Utah Beach / Sainte-Marie-Du-Mont (188km) Contributed by Vincent Villerius, Coach (Cofidis) Let’s have a look at the SRM file from the first stage of the Tour de France of promising young French sprinter, Christophe Laporte, normally Nacer Bouhanni’s leadout man in the Cofidis sprint train. After the late withdrawal of Bouhanni just 3 days before the Grand Départ, Laporte has become the sprinter of the team for the sprints in this year’s Tour de France. He took a great 6th place in the sprint behind world class sprinters as Cavendish, Kittel, Sagan and Greipel and missed out the white jersey for best young riders by just one place, with Edward Theuns finishing just in front of him.

Ironman 70.3 Boulder

20. June 2016 - 8 months and 6 days ago

June 11, 2016: Weiss posts fastest bike split and bike course record After a disastrous triple puncture day just three weeks previously at Ironman Texas, it was great to see SRM sponsored pro triathlete Michi Weiss getting back to business and doing what he does best – riding hard and fast. So on a warm and sunny Saturday in Boulder, Colorado and after a decent but uneventful 1.9km swim which saw Michi exit T1 four minutes down on the leaders, it was time to put his new aero optimized DiamondBack Serios through its paces over the technical bike course. In so doing, he not only set the fastest bike split of the day but also recorded the fastest ever bike split in Ironman 70.3 Boulder history. A decent day back in the office, especially as he also ran well off the bike posting a 1h18m half marathon and came home in 6th place overall. Lets take a closer look at Michi’s SRM power file.
