Giveaway Extravaganza: SRAM Quarq Riken Power Meter


What? You thought I’d be just doing watches today? Oh how wrong you are…you just wait…I’m only getting warmed up.

The Quarq power meter allows you to more accurately pace your race and training efforts, ultimately increasing the likelihood of a more successful day. By using power instead of speed, you’ll be able to normalize the impacts of wind or hills, and keep a constant effort according to your race plan. Wait, you did have a race plan right? You know, something roughly sketched out that said more than just ‘find finish line’? Oh dear…maybe we ought to just start with nutrition first…
