2015 Tour de France - Stage 12

17. July 2015 - 2 years and 3 days 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.

2015 Tour de France - Stage 11

16. July 2015 - 2 years and 3 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 - 2 years and 10 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.

Ironman Austria

04. July 2015 - 2 years and 16 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.
