Lafayette, CO, February 5, 2009 -- TrainingPeaks.com and the training analysis software, WKO+ is proud to announce being chosen as an official supplier to the Team Saxo Bank professional cycling team.

"I am excited that Team Saxo Bank will be using TrainingPeaks in 2009," said Bobby Julich, Team Saxo Bank's Rider Development Manager, and recently retired professional cyclist. "Through the efficient sharing and comprehensive analysis of training data and racing files, our team management and the cyclists themselves will better understand what type of training and recovery is uniquely required for their individual success and for the team as a whole."

When an internet connection is available, the data will be uploaded to the rider's TrainingPeaks.com Personal Edition account.
