SRAM just officially launched their new Power meter equipped crankset at the Sea Otter classic. An SRM crankset doesn’t come cheap, but this integrated, low q-factor design from SRAM makes sense if you need to measure power output. Read more about it here and here.
Okay, that was a rushed post. Why? Because I am busy gearing up for the Tour de Georgia this week. I’ll be following the race on the web today through Thursday. In addition to Velonews, Cyclingnews, and Pez, I will be checking out the Tour Tracker coverage on the Tour de Georgia website. If you enjoyed the live coverage of the Tour of California, expect the same type of coverage this week in Georgia. I also plan to check out blog coverage of the race. The Tour de Georgia blog and Road Magazine blog will be two that I keep an eye on this week.
Friday, I will be at Brasstown Bald for the mountain top finish of stage 5. I did a time trial up that road many years ago and have painful memories of those steep grades. I was cramping up and swerving all over the road as I approached the finish at the top, but I still enjoy watching the pros make this climb look easy. I can’t make it to Saturday’s stage, but I will be back in Georgia for the finish Sunday in midtown Atlanta. I can’t wait. I’ll let you know as soon as I post my race pictures to Flickr.
