Aiming to take a step forward when it comes to measure every single aspect of their performance in an easier, more exact way and improve their riders’ outcome on the road, the Movistar Team has signed a partnership agreement with INSCYD.
“As coaches who are often chasing races or training camps all over the world during a season, enjoying INSCYD’s approach for our work with performance testing is a massive improvement”, explains Patxi Vila, Head of Performance, Movistar Team.
The goal is to simplify the assessment process for the coaches and athletes while elevating the level of accuracy and improving performance.
“We are excited for our partnership with the Movistar Team”, states Sebastain Weber. “For a professional cycling team, the ability to perform highly accurate and holistic performance assessments on a regular basis is crucial. Visiting labs during the season isn’t a viable option, nor does it reflect real world performances. INSCYD gives the team the ability to do this, with simple field tests out in the real world, which mimic race and training environments.
Patxi Vila, Head of Performance, Movistar Team “Being able to take real-world data from the athlete’s conventional testing/training and having INSCYD’s software turn it into measurements which paint a picture you’d often be able to obtain only through specific lab tests saves us time and effort, and refines the quality of our job.”
INSCYDs ability to provide actionable data with a more holistic view of the athlete’s current situation while also painting a picture of where they need to be is crucial throughout their season. This road-map provides detailed insights into the athlete’s strength and weakness and when the data is utilized correctly can ultimately pave the road to success.
Patxi Vila, Head of Performance, Movistar Team “This is something our squad’s Performance team will benefit greatly from, which usually leads to success – what every team aims for in sports.”
