What's Cool In Road Cycling

RacerMate Wants A Few Good Time Trialers

So you think you’re fast? Here’s another way to get the most out of the endless hours spent spinning the winter away, and pick up some nationwide braggin’ rights… the CompuTrainer 10km Time Trial Competition.

By now you’ve probably read our reviews of the Computrainer and Velotron from RacerMate, and you’ll know why we like ‘em.

Sure they advertise with us, but truth is they do make very good indoor trainers – easy to use, chock-full of data, and very effective. I’ve been using one myself this winter and am happy to report that I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in for February, and my fitness came back much faster than before.

Go Dawgs, Go! Look at those boys… sufferin at the EnduraDawgs 10km trials. Can’t you just smell the sweat?

Adding a new twist to the indoor training regime, RacerMate is launching a series of 10km Time trials, to be held at various times and locations across the country, to see who’s the fastest man – and woman – in the land.

The system has already proven successful in trials run by Scott Schnitzspahn of EnduraDawgs Endurance Sports Racing Club.

Scott worked with the RacerMate engineers to fine tune the software under real racing trials. The result is a “race” of up to 8 riders going head to head, and against the clock, to see who’s fastest. Riders complete the 10m TT and receive a printout of their personal data, including watts, speed, peaks and more.

The fist official competition will be held in early March at the Seattle Bike Show. RacerMate will be set up with 8 CompuTrainers connected to the computer, running 10km TT’s all day long. The data stored from all participants will be available on the CompuTrainer website for all to see. As more TT’s are held, more data will be added.

Racers will compete head to head, with races starting every hour on the hour.
