Aiming to take a step forward when it comes to measure every single aspect of their performance in an easier, more exact way and improve their riders’ outcome on the road, the Bardiani CSF Faizanè team has signed a partnership agreement with INSCYD, the most advanced tool to analyze endurance performance in athletes.

INSCYD’s software has given coaches, sport scientists, national federations and sporting teams over many different disciplines the ability to own the performance testing process, creating a full metabolic performance profile of an athlete with simple field test protocols. The brand’s Power Performance Decoder (PPD) allows for tests all over the world, or even remotely, with an accuracy equal to, or even greater, than conventional lab tests, which helps INSCYD to reproduce race / training scenarios in a more precise, productive way. The list of parameters analyzed by INSCYD includes, amongst others: aerobic capacity, glycolytic capacity, anaerobic threshold, energy cost of locomotion, fuel contribution (Fat vs. Carbohydrate), lactate accumulation & recovery, aerobic vs. anaerobic energy contribution.

Bardiani CSF Faizanè is the Professional long-lasting team in the World. Season 2022 will be the 41 consecutive year of management for Bruno Reverberi. Bardiani CSF Faizanè team is one of the 3 Italian Professional Cycling team, with 39 participations to the Giro d’Italia, and with a strong background in launching new Italian talents in cycling. Many big Italian names as started they career in the “#GreenTeam”, such as Sonny Colbrelli, Giulio Ciccone and Sacha Modolo. In 2022 the team will be composed by 25 riders, with an average age of 23 years old, and with the big goal to launch new talents in Professional cycling. The INSCYD technology will be a fundamental tool to make them grow as top pro-riders, in order to be ready to compete in modern cycling. 

Sebastian Weber, INSCYD: “We are excited for our partnership with the Bardiani CSF Faizanè Team. For a professional cycling team, the ability to perform highly accurate and holistic performance assessments on a regular basis is crucial. Visiting labs during the season isn’t a viable option, nor does it reflect real world performances. INSCYD gives the team the ability to do this, with simple field tests out in the real world, which mimic race and training environments.

Our goal is to simplify the assessment process for the coaches and athletes while elevating the level of accuracy. Providing actionable data with a more holistic view of the athlete’s current situation while also painting a picture of where they need to be is crucial throughout their season. This roadmap provides detailed insights into the athlete’s strength and weakness and when the data is utilized correctly can ultimately pave the road to success.”

Giuseppe Toni, Head of Performance, Bardiani CSF Faizanè Team: have been using INSCYD’s test analysis platform for some years and I think it is a fundamental tool for checking and improving performance. The physiological results make it possible to create workouts aimed at improving the athlete’s abilities and the concept of VLmax is in my opinion the new reference in coaching, for the perfect calibration of work intervals. I wanted INSCYD as a partner above all for the practicality of its test protocols, and the ease of use of the Power Performance Decoder (PPD) having to coordinate the work of many coaches outside the team, and it will be essential to have reliable and important data, to grow the young athletes of the team. Ultimately, an irreplaceable tool for managing a professional team
