Eurobike Tech: BMC Concept Bike

Concept cars are common at auto tradeshows; manufacturers are always showing some futuristic model that will never see production. But those cars are more than just fun to look at — they often hold technologies that will make it into production models.

2014 Eurobike - day 2

More bikes, people and gadgets caught the eyes of our editor-in-chief on the second day of the 2014 Eurobike trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Introducing the Parlee Altum R

While we perused the many halls of the 2014 Eurobike show we stumbled upon the very beautiful blue Parlee Altum R bike and decided to look closer.

The new Cervelo S5 is here

The Cervelo S5 is a popular and proven aero road bike, but it is not good to rest on laurels and thus the crew at Cervelo worked hard on this new design.

4 Tips to Consider After Your First Triathlon

Congratulations. You've crossed the finish line on your first triathlon.

You might not realize it, but this is a critical period in your burgeoning endurance sports career. After your first race, you must be able to learn from your performance.

Follow this step-by-step system to analyze the key factors of your race and generate targeted goals based on those results.

Step 1: Find Your Results

Race results are typically posted within 48 hours of the event's completion. If you're serious about learning from your races, give yourself a reminder to check the race website, since you may not receive an e-mail notification.,, and are websites that allow you to search triathlon results for your times and splits, compare races, and find accurate data from previous years. also allows you to compare your times and examine head-to-head match-ups against participants you frequently compete against.

More: How to Find Valuable Lessons in Your First Race Results

Step 2: Examine Your Splits

In addition to reporting your overall time, many online race results now offer the following:

  • Swim time, pace per 100 meters or yards, overall place, and occasionally, division place and splits for multiple loop swims
  • First transition (T1) time
  • Bike time, pace per mile or km, pace at specific checkmarks (such as when you cross certain timing mats on a longer race course) and placing
  • Second transition (T2) time
  • Run time, pace per mile or km, checkmark pace, and placing

From such detailed results, you can glean important and helpful information. For example, ask yourself the following questions: How does my open water pace compare to my pool pace? How does my open water pace change in choppy water versus smooth swims? Does it appear that I need more practice swimming in groups or in open water?

Are my T1 times slow compared to others (especially in my division)? How did my bike speed compare to others in my division? In longer races, were my bike splits consistent between checkmarks, or did I slow as the race progressed?

Do I rank lower in T2 than in T1, and if so, should I practice bike dismounts or changing into my running shoes more quickly? How are my run splits between checkmarks--did I come out of T2 too fast? Did my fueling strategies on the bike affect my run pacing early in the run, or later?

Here's a neat swim session to work on the rhythm of your stroke. It's a lot of fun to try, in fact many of the Swim Smooth squad in Perth said it was probably the best squad session they've ever swum - wow!

If you've had a bit of a lay-off from swimming or feel a bit stagnant in your training then this is the perfect session to kick-start things again.

Un-Funk Your Swimming

You will need a Finis Tempo Trainer Pro for this session and also know how to perform the Scull #1, Doggy Paddle and Javelin Drills.


Wear fins for the Javelin drill and take them off for the freestyle 100s:

100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 3 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing left every 4 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 6 strokes (right on way up the pool, left on way back down)
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 7 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 6 strokes (right on way up the pool, left on way back down)
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing right every 4 strokes
100m Javelin Drill
100m Freestyle breathing every 3 strokes
100m Javelin Drill

Then with Tempo Trainer Pro in Mode 3:
2x 50m at 55 SPM
2x 50m at 65 SPM
2x 50m at 75 SPM
2x 50m at 85 SPM
2x 50m at 75 SPM
2x 50m at 65 SPM
2x 50m at 55 SPM
Swim each 50m as:

12½m Scull #1
+ 12½m Doggy Paddle
+ 25m Freestyle to stroke rate

Take 5 seconds rest after every 50m.
The range 55 to 85 SPM will suit most swimmers but if you are an Overglider or Bambino with a low stroke rate, reduce all stroke rates by 10 SPM.


Pick what stroke rate felt 'optimal' from the previous set. This doesn't have to be exactly 55 or 65 etc - it could be 58 or 63 etc.

Now swim:

200m at this self-selected stroke rate
2 or 4x 50m at 2 SPM below
2 or 4x 50m at 2 SPM above

What do you notice? What feels good?

Remember when it comes to rhythm don't over-think it - FEEL IT!
