RAAM- Team MAXMO trains with SRM for a good cause

10. April 2015 - 3 years, 10 months and 11 days ago

Team Maxmo is taking part in the Race Across America, RAAM, the hardest cycling race in the world. The team supports children of the palliative care department Sternenboot of University Hospital Duesseldorf. Rudolf Scharping took the patronage for this charitable event. The miles undertook by our cyclists over the duration of the course will be sponsored by both companies and private investors; each mile costing €40. With the sponsorship money raised we aim to fulfill the last wishes of the children of Sternenboot, University Hospital Duesseldorf. Of course SRM is contributing to the charitable cause as the team needs the best equipment in order to take on the challenge and highly demanding training. Therefore the athletes train by SRM standards based on their individual level measured in watt but also together in regular team simulations. During the race itself the athletes of course can rely on our SRM measuring devices which will support them in order to not just finish the race but also achieve a top finishing rank.

The Speed Record with SRM

19. November 2014 - 4 years, 3 months and 1 day ago

The hunt for records has always fascinated people and is a driving force behind technological progress. The cycling world offers a variety of time and distance records, with the Hour Record most popular today. As the recent achievements by Jens Voigt and Matthias Brandle have shown, these performances are no longer conceivable without the use of power meters. Performance data provided by the SRM Training System has proven to be essential in training and preparation as well as during the official record attempt. With Gold Standard precision and scientifically proven accuracy, SRM has been the choice of all athletes with 'record setting' inspirations!  Most recently, the Velocipede team of University of Liverpool, has incorporated SRM in their research projects and are now benefiting from SRM's 30 years of knowledge and experience in power measurement application.  The ULV team consists of eight enthusiastic engineering students. In a two-year project they want one from a human-powered vehicle (Human Powered Vehicle, HPV) construct, with the current speed record may be surpassed flying over the 200 m. Currently, this record is the men at 133.78 km/h and for women at 121.81 km/h! There is an SRM Training System Science aboard the ARION 1, as this HPV is named. The data obtained by the SRM will help to advance and improve the performance of the vehicle. The next record attempt will be set up at the World Human Power Speed Challenge in September 2015 in Battle Mountain, United States.

La Vuelta a España Stage 13

08. September 2014 - 4 years, 5 months and 12 days ago

Vuelta a España stage 13 was from Burgos to Cantabria. A hilly 187km route that included a thigh burning 24% incline for 700 m. The race featured an early breakaway of 11 riders taking off from the peloton to tackle the challenging course and was reduced to only five riders with 30km remaining. The last uncategorized climb saw again nearly twelve riders sprinting for the finish which included top contenders, Contador, Froome, and Valverde, but it was the Spanish climber, Daniel Navarro (Cofidis), who made the gutsy attack for the biggest win of his career to date. Cofidis became an SRM sponsored team this year in conjunction with the launch of the new FSA K-Force Light UCB (User Changeable Battery) PowerMeter. Read more about the partnership and SRM's latest PowerMeter technology HERE.
