Team GreenEDGE Selects TrainingPeaks as Official Training Software Supplier
Roadcycling.com partner TrainingPeaks will power detailed analysis and performance monitoring for newest addition to the UCI WorldTour roster, Team GreenEDGE.
Australian professional cycling team GreenEDGE has selected Roadcycling.com partner TrainingPeaks to be their official supplier of cycling training software for their first year in the 2012 UCI WorldTour. GreenEDGE will collect heart rate and power data from each team rider's training and racing for analysis and monitoring on the TrainingPeaks platform by team coaches and staff. TrainingPeaks will also be used as a tool for riders to receive planned meals and training programs from GreenEDGE coaches, and provide feedback on workouts to team coordinators.
"GreenEDGE Cycling will utilize TrainingPeaks software to improve our understanding of each individual athlete's performance capabilities, and then use that information to improve the athlete's limiters, as well as help us make roster decisions" says Marc Quod, GreenEDGE team physiologist.
On the TrainingPeaks side, co-founder Dirk Friel is very excited about the new partnership. "GreenEDGE has proven with their recent overall win in the Tour Down Under that they are a team to watch in the 2012 UCI WorldTour. We're honored they've chosen TrainingPeaks to give them cutting-edge insight on their riders' performance, fitness, and trends as they prepare themselves to explode onto the world stage."
GreenEDGE is now the third ProTour cycling team to officially partner with TrainingPeaks, including British Team Sky Procycling and Denmark's Team Saxo Bank.
GreenEDGE recently earned its first WorldTour victory when team rider Simon Gerrans nabbed the ochre leader's jersey at the Santos Tour Down Under in Adelaide, Australia in January. Other prominent GreenEDGE riders include Stuart O'Grady, Allan Davis, Luke Durbridge, and Cameron Meyer. Throughout the 2012 cycling season, training and racing data from various GreenEDGE cyclists will be made available for public viewing on TrainingPeaks.com, with professional analysis provided by TrainingPeaks.
