How to have the best bike split ever at your next triathlon * Rich Harpel and Ryan Cooper

March 16, 2022

How cool would it be to have an accurate prediction of the bike split in your next event? Even if it’s just to make sure that your other half knows when to be ready with the camera!

This is exactly what Best Bike Split does and by all accounts, they are pretty damn accurate. Most comments and reviews I've seen refer to something equating to a 1% accuracy, which would be a minute for a standard distance tri and 3-4 minutes in an Iron-distance event. In this week's High Performance Human podcast, I’ll be speaking with Rich Harpel and Ryan Cooper who are the brains behind this software. We'll be deep-diving into how you can get the most from this awesome bit of software. Topics we chat about include:

  • How to get started with BBS in less than 10 mins
  • What's most important to get an accurate output
  • Common mistakes and how to avoid them messing up your race day predictions
  • How BBS can show you whether it’s best to boost power or lose weight
  • Reverse engineering race goals to inform your training
  • Using BBS for sportives and gravel racing
