USA Cycling gets a cognitive advantage.

Since their last trip to the podium this spring, American cyclists in the Women’s Team Pursuit have been taking precious seconds off their times by training with an IBM Cloud cognitive solution.

Each team member’s anaerobic muscle capacity and wattage output is tracked in real time through sensors, along with cyclist sequencing and track locations. The program then analyzes the data to help them make game-changing pacing and switching decisions, and provides feedback to the riders’ eyewear. It’s been one small part of USA Cycling’s performance improvement in 2016 – congrats Sarah, Chloe, Ruth, Kelly and Jennifer!
