Trek Factory Racing partners with Best Bike Split
logotrekfrt Software partner to help team optimize for time trials and more.

Trek Factory Racing is happy to announce a partnership with Best Bike Split. The Dallas, Texas based company will provide the team with software to plan time trial pacing strategies, select the ideal equipment for race day conditions and determine other course specific tactical choices, in particular for time trials.

Ryan Cooper, founder of Best Bike Split: “In racing every seconds counts. Our math and physics optimization engine takes the power data of each individual rider, course info, and race day conditions into account to give the team the perfect power output plan to achieve the fastest possible time while staying within target power ranges.”

Jordan Roessingh, TFR’s Technical Manager: “Best Bike Split will help us gain those precious seconds through optimal power pacing strategies. The software determines where on the course it makes sense to power up and power down. This kind of race simulation is vital to determine a TT strategy and it shows TFR’s determination to keep innovating.”

“The software pairs a physiological model, individual to each rider, to his ‘drag figures’, basically his aerodynamics. It recommends an ideal pacing strategy for each section of a time trial and gives valuable equipment recommendations for complicated courses. Best Bike Split’s software is very powerful and the team is going to benefit a great deal from it.”

The Best Bike Split collaboration will complement Trek’s existing data base around the aerodynamics of frames, helmets, different wheel choices and rider position.
