After a fabulous start at the Paralympic Games where Jetze won the gold at the paratriathlon, the next event will be the handbike timetrial.
What have we done to optimize the handbike and be as fast as he can be?
Well, a lot !!
We have visited the windtunnel at the TU Eindhoven with special thanks to Bert Blocken
Goal of these tests was to optimize the handbike and choosing the right set up, for example which wheel set up is the best to use in cetrain conditions?
During the Timetrial the 2-Spoke wheels will be used
During the first course check, which was more than a year ago, Jetze has made video recordings.
With this video he has been able to train at home on his handbike and Tacx on the virtual course
Beste Bike Split
With the use of the Best Bike Split software it is possible to make a power plan for the race.
Adding data about wheather, course and performance power duration of Jetze, I am able to make a plan for him to ride as fast as he can with power values he can focus on.
According to this plan he will finish the 3 laps within 40 min
If you want to see more about the preparations we did, you can have a look at the Sportlab Sedoc program
