-- RacerMate's NEW MultiRider Software makes it possible for up to 8 CompuTrainer riders to race or train together as a group using a single PC. This gives clubs, cycling centers, coaches and interested CompuTrainer owners an exciting new indoor group activity. MultiRider was first used during the highly successful CompuTrainer 10K Indoor Time Trials in February 2004 which were run in 12 U.S. cities.
Prior to MultiRider CompuTrainer users have been limited to 2-man races. Even this added a lot to the experience of training indoors. But the group dynamic with up to 8 riders adds a whole new dimension of FUN to the experience of indoor bike training.
MultiRider software contains the same course library and course generator as the CompuTrainer 3D software. At the end of a MultiRider race each rider is given a printout of his performance data (time, speed, watts). The data can also be uploaded to our website where a perpetual ranking will be maintained. Each participant's 'saved' race file will also be stored on the website where it can be freely downloaded for later use as a 'virtual' opponent---an excellent way to improve performance.
The MultiRider locations where you go to race and/or train will be listed on the website very soon. MultiRider events in October and November will take place at the Interbike Show in Las Vegas and the three public VeloSwaps in Denver, San Francisco and Chicago.
