The San Diego Low Speed Wind Tunnel hosts BMC trio

BMC Racing's Tejay van Garderen, Taylor Phinney and Rohan Dennis visited the San Diego Low Speed Wind Tunnel last month to fine tune their time trial positions while testing their bikes and the benefits of different clothing options.

Working in collaboration with title sponsor, bike manufacturer BMC and Pearl Izumi, the trio of riders, staff and technicians worked on position analysis, tested prototype skinsuits and looked at the differences between traditional jersey and shorts combinations compared with speed jersey and shorts as well as race kits and traditional TT skinsuits.

The idea behind the collaboration was to increase rider comfort while gaining a few watts heading into the 2016 season.
