Reading Time: 2 minutes

Last month at the Tour of Flanders race in Belgium, Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank continued to keep their momentum strong in 2021 with a top 10 result from cyclist Kristen Faulkner in an extremely challenging race. Faulkner said afterward that the team’s positioning is improving with every race. 

One of the ways that TIBCO is helping work with the professional women cyclists of Team TIBCO-SVB is with the power of the TIBCO Spotfire Dashboard. The analytics in the Spotfire Dashboard provides analysis of Team TIBCO-SVB’s real-time performance data and can compare metrics between riders and races over the course of a season and beyond. 

TIBCO Spotfire Lets You Race with the Team

With our interactive TIBCO Spotfire Dashboard, you can follow Faulkner on her ride into the top 10 at Tour of Flanders, along with her teammates, and see how Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank powers through one of the most competitive races on the WorldTour calendar.

You can select specific riders to follow, such as Faulkner or other Team TIBCO-SVB riders in the race, including Lauren Stephens, Sarah Gigante, Nina Kessler, and Eri Yonamine. Then, you select what metrics you want to measure, such as power, cadence, speed, and heart rate. Once selected, you can see how these metrics fluctuate during the race and compare the position and performance of all the riders at any stage of the race.

The Power of Data Meets the Power of Teamwork

All of these metrics, as well the ability to compare current seasons to previous ones, the intensity of rides, and more, are valuable pieces of data for the team and its coaches. These analytics can help the team recognize trends in performance, spot potential weak areas, anticipate challenges, and plan training sessions around them.

For fans of Team TIBCO-SVB, the Spotfire Dashboard gives them the chance to see both the riders and the race in a way that they would otherwise not be able to. The data not only shows fine performance metrics but also helps tell the story of how the team strategy is executed and played out, with different riders taking on different roles throughout a race to bring the team closer to victory. 

You can explore the Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank Cycling Performance dashboard for yourself, including the Tour of Flanders and other races.
