A brand new version of the official Team Sky Cycling app for iPhone, which allows riders to record, monitor and analyse their training just like the pro riders, has been launched.

Created in partnership with Team Sky’s official supplier, Map My Tracks, the free Team Sky Cycling app uses the latest in GPS live tracking technology to allow fans as well as Team Sky pro riders to track and share their rides live for others to follow on the web.

With the ability to connect to ANT+ devices such as SRM or Powertap power meters, riders will also be able to stream live power, cadence, heart rate, speed, elevation and other performance data to coaches via the Map My Tracks cloud network. Each heartbeat, pedal stroke, mile and watt produced can be monitored to provide riders, and coaches alike, with a unique real-time performance overview.

Map My Tracks’ training and fitness apps extend beyond individual rider solutions.

Coaches, teams and sports event organisers can monitor, broadcast and share realtime biometric data from any number of participants in an event live on the web.

From club rides to WorldTour races, the Map My Tracks event app tracking get online fans closer to the action than ever before.

First launched in 2007, Map My Tracks has, for over five years, pioneered the use of mobile phones to record and stream live performance telemetry for sports like cycling and running. Map My Tracks has sports enthusiasts streaming activities live from over 190 countries and provides event organisers with live GPS tracking solutions for cycle races, sailing regattas and running events.

Fran Millar, Head of Business Operations, from Team Sky said: “Giving our fans access to training and tracking technology with Map My Tracks is a great way for them to get an insight into Team Sky and how our riders prepare throughout the year.

"The app also encourages riders of all levels to analyse and record their own data and then share their results with fellow cyclists.”

Nick Tatt, founder of Map My Tracks said: “We have worked hard with Team Sky to ensure the Team Sky Cycling app is easy to use and will help people with their training.

“The app takes advantage of our very latest live tracking technology which lets friends and family follow a rider’s progress live and comment on their performance as they hit the climbs. With the addition of live heart rate, power and cadence it makes the Team Sky training app an obvious training accessory to take on any ride.”
