“Cycling is one of the most advanced sports in the world when it comes to technical data analysis. Having the support of Pioneer with their power meter technology on our bikes is paramount in monitoring and guiding our athletes’ training and race performance.  In my role as High Performance Director, I am able to stay engaged with their form progress on the physiological side, monitor fatigue levels, and delve deeper into efficiency factors by analyzing each rider’s pedal stroke,” said Ben Day.
