The role of INSCYD in winning a team time trial

Yesterday was a historic day for the team by winning its first team time trial. Head of Performance Mathieu Heijboer tells more about the role of INSCYD in winning the team time trial.

“Winning the TTT in Britain is consequence of hard work. But every team works hard obviously. Part of our work is using INSCYD's Load Characteristics graphs for determining TTT race tactics. This tells us what happens metabolically when a rider pulls on the front and when he recover's in the wheels. Using each rider's metabolic profile provides us valuable info on how long and how hard he should pull. And then how much recovery time is needed before he pulls again. All this info together helps us to make our race tactics perfect and get the best out of each TTT.”
