Pro Cycling Goes Indoors
Updated: Feb 10
At Motus, we are paying very close attention to the evolving and fast-growing indoor cycling market. This past weekend, was the first ever indoor "Lockdown" edition of the Tour of Flanders Ronde van Vlaanderen featuring cycling stars such as Greg Van Avermaet, Wout van Aert, Remco Evenepoel, and many others. What we found curious was how varied the riders were at adapting their body position to generate the most power, even though there was no "wind resistance" to factor in. Is "virtual wind resistance" the next feature where your body position could be detected and allow you to change your indoor cycling position to find the sweet spot between aerodynamics and power to go faster? We think so.
