Team Saxo Bank Professional Cycling Team Selects TrainingPeaks
Team Saxo Bank Professional Cycling Team Extends Contract with TrainingPeaks
TrainingPeaks has been selected for the second year in a row as the Official Training and Nutrition Software by Team Saxo Bank for the 2010 race season.
Lafayette, CO, January 19, 2010 -- Peaksware, LLC, the software development company of the online training and nutrition log, TrainingPeaks.com and the training analysis software, WKO+ is proud to announce being chosen as an official supplier to the Team Saxo Bank professional cycling team for the second year in a row. The team will utilize TrainingPeaks to monitor and plan each rider’s training program through the analysis of workout data collected from their SRM power meters.
"It is a must that riders and coaches evaluate and analyze all aspects of training, racing, and recovery in order to progress," said Bobby Julich, Team Saxo Bank's Rider Development Manager. "TrainingPeaks software allows our riders to do this and gives them another tool in their toolbox to get the best out of themselves and obtain important objectives."
Team members will continue to upload workout data from their SRM power meters directly to their secured TrainingPeaks accounts accessible from anywhere in the world. Team directors, doctors and coaches can then access the files in order to monitor, analyze and plan each cyclist's training program.
"TrainingPeaks is proud to extend our official supplier status with Team Saxo Bank. As we enter our second year we are already seeing how the riders are benefitting from having collected data throughout 2009 to compare against. This should also benefit the team directors as they start to develop training and race programs for 2010," says Dirk Friel, Chief Marketing Officer and Co-Founder of Peaksware. "Our products simplify and provide efficiency, accuracy and transparency to the management of each rider's health and fitness.”
TrainingPeaks WKO+ is used by each rider to download their workout data from their SRM power meter and is then sent to the rider’s TrainingPeaks.com Personal Edition account. The team directors and doctors then analyze the data to determine the cyclist’s current fitness trends using TrainingPeaks Professional Edition in combination with WKO+.
