Team INEOS have announced a new technology partnership with Australian startup, Today’s Plan, who have developed an advanced Analytics and Training System for coaches, athletes and everyday riders.
The platform is the primary tool used by Team INEOS coaches for training prescription and analysis of the rider’s performances and training load. The platform supports not just on-bike and on-body sensor data, but also integrates in external data such as weather, nutrition and wellness data from a range of fitness systems – allowing extensive data correlation for enhanced decision making.
For the riders, the platform’s ecosystem of mobile and desktop apps, and the main website become their daily touch point for recording ride data, and other subjective inputs, and to review their training progression as they prepare for the world’s pinnacle bike races.
Ben Bowley, Managing Director of Today’s Plan "The best demand the best, and we are working closely with Team INEOS, who have won the Tour de France on four of the past five occasions, to meet the specific requirements of the riders, coaching and performance staff.
"The beauty of our partnership with Team INEOS is that it will benefit all users of Today’s Plan. We will work with Team INEOS' coaches, sports scientists and other specialists to enable the team to advance their use of training prescription, analytics and other data sources to support performance. This drive in innovation will make Today’s Plan a stronger training tool for every cyclist – from professional riders through to people new to training."
Sir Dave Brailsford, Team Principal of Team INEOS: "I believe the next real advantage will come not from which team can acquire the most information, but from which team can best put the insights gained from that information into practice – day to day, week after week. This partnership with Today’s Plan will give Team INEOS that advantage. Successfully and efficiently sharing that information with coaches, the Sports Directors, performance staff and riders will drive improvements, both now and in the future”.
