Anyone else come across this : http://www.trainerroad.com/ ?

I've been using the beta version now for a couple of weeks and even it looks pretty good.

(I'm not affiliated in any way to the website/makers.)

Can you export the ride into a TCX format? (I'm happy enough with a power derived from speed on my KKR - assuming you work with the optional flywheel too) to bother to put a speed/cadence sensor on a turbo bike rather than a trainer tyre on a powertap wheel, and would quite like to get the power calculated TCX for analysis in other tools.

I've been looking at this for a while - but am waiting for the Mac version which I hope will be released soon.

Hopefully it will be something to give a bit of purpose and structure to winter training.

Not right now. We plan on allowing for file download, and automatic upload to sites like Garmin Connect and TrainingPeaks.

Yup! Reid and I both did test workouts with a native Mac TrainerRoad app.

I notice a couple things that need fixing, but nothing major. If you sign up for us now you will get an e-mail when we get Mac support.

Cheers, I'll still have a look at it I guess - not that I atually ride on the horrible green thing.

Downloaded this and will be hurting myself with it this weekend. Looks awesome and coincides perfectly with the completion of my man-hut / pain chamber. Might actually do a race next year!

I dowloaded the Mac version a couple of days ago and while there are still a few bugs to be ironed out it looks like a good product.

Anything that increases the motivation to use the turbo over the winter has got to be a good thing!

Tried to do the 20 min FTP test tonight but there is something wrong with my setup. Either that or I should replace Chris Hoy next summer.

I am using an older Kurt Fluid trainer rather than the road machine but I thought it had the same power curve. In fact I think it was called the road machine when I bought it from Planet X but its labelled as a Kinetic by Kurt fluid trainer.
