The third and fourth editions of the new UCI Track Champions League are Friday and Saturday in London. Tel Aviv was supposed to be the fifth and final round on December 11. It however has been cancelled Thursday due to Israel’s travel bans as a result of the new Omicron Covid-19 variant.
The app will let you see power, speed, heart rate, and cadence during the events. You can even compare two different riders’ data. There’s also a “Feel Heartbeat” option, which uses your phones’ vibration function to actually “feel” the live heartbeat of a rider.
