SRM in Grand Tour Mode

21. September 2015 - 2 months and 7 days ago

Q&A with trainer Josu Larrazabal: How TFR utilizes its SRM PowerMeters during a Grand Tour like the Vuelta Look closely at any of the Trek Factory Racing sleek red Trek bikes and you will see centered on each handlebar a red, square SRM headunit – a mini-computer dashboard so to speak – and eying each crankset you will notice each one fitted with an SRM Shimano 11-Speed PowerMeter.   Power meters are not new to the world of cycling, training and racing with this technology has been around for roughly 20 years already, all thanks to its creator, SRM. The German engineered SRM (Schoberer Rad Messtechnik) was the first crank-based power meter and pioneers of the science behind power-based cycling. SRM first established in 1986, but due to its initial high cost did not make its way to the general cycling communality until mid-1990, and since then power-based training has exploded. Where once training and racing with power meters was seen only in the pro ranks, today it is the normal standard for most competitive cyclists, from amateurs to pros.  Trek Factory Racing is continuing its partnership with SRM through 2016, and we wanted to know more about how Trek Factory Racing utilizes this cutting-edge technology, specifically in a grueling race like a three-week Grand Tour. A few days after the Vuelta finished we cornered director and trainer Josu Larrazabal to drill him with a few questions about the Vuelta, the SRM, and just what the heck the team does with all the data it collects.
