Giro d’Italia Data Analysis

May 23, 2017

We have been working on data and wattage analysis coming out of the Giro which is now entering its 3rd and final week. We expect some explosive racing as the opportunity to win the maglia rosa takes place in the harsh climbs which the riders will visit in the last week. Mt Etna.jpg

The first mountain-top finish of this year’s Giro d’Italia came early — on just the fourth day of the race. The 181km stage concluded with a nearly 20km climb up Mt. Etna, Europe’s highest active volcano, on a day that led to a somewhat unlikely breakaway victory for Slovenia’s Jan Polanc (UAE Team Emirates). We worked on analysis from the power needed to perform on this first big mountain, check out the full article via CyclingTips HERE

Sunday’s stage 9 of the Giro d’Italia was the race’s second summit finish, but it was the first time we saw the big GC contenders really stretch their legs. On the steep climb to Blockhaus, Nairo Quintana (Movistar), one of the big favourites for this year’s Giro, attacked several times to get away from his rivals and win the stage. It saw the Colombian move into the pink jersey of overall race leader.

In the following article, former pro and Dig Deep Coaching co-founder Stephen Gallagher analyses the power data of riders at this year’s Giro d’Italia to see what was involved in posting a good result in the race’s second uphill finish. Check out the full article HERE
