Stages LinkStart for Free
A training platform designed to help you become a better rider
Stages Link custom tailors training plans and daily workouts to benefit the rider and help achieve performance goals — whether that’s to simply improve fitness or target specific races over multiple seasons.
Stages Link is a hub of cloud-based coaching, education, training analysis and equipment management tools. Developed collaboratively with the analytics experts at Today’s Plan, the system is backed by the industry’s most advanced analysis capabilities currently used in the professional peloton.
The best tool for data collection and performance analysis.
Stages Link has been developed by the experts at Today’s Plan who have experience working with some of the brightest and best minds in the sport of cycling — the coaches, physiologists, and experts at Trek-Segafredo, and Team Sky professional cycling teams. The same data used to monitor and prepare the superstars of cycling for their competitions is now available for every rider via Stages Link. No matter what their goal, the Stages Link equips riders with the tools to help them achieve their goals.
Using Link Riders Can:
- Generate and follow training plans based on their cycling aspirations.
- Manages all Stages hardware (Dash and Power).
- Record metadata from Stages Power and Stages Dash (battery condition, firmware version, zero reset values, etc.) to ensure riders are getting consistent, usable data from their Stages devices.
Planned Action. Powerful Results.
Link helps riders get the most out of their power meter.
A power meter is a tool, and unlike a pair of aerodynamic carbon fiber wheels, putting a Stages Power meter does not instantly make you a faster cyclist. Using Link you will be able to auto-generate training plans to fit your needs, push workouts to the Stages Dash head unit – so it’s easier to follow workouts when on a ride and upon completion, Link generates a Workout Compliance Score to assess your performance and inform the next ride.
Training Plan Generator
Whether you want to train for a specific event or train to improve your performance, Stages Link has the ability to auto-generate a training program to put you on the path to success. Training plans are generated based on your self-assessment and other key parameters — like weekly availability to train, ride type, event date. If a rider uses a coach, Stages Link allows them to connect their account to their coach who uses Today’s Plan. The coach can build training plans as usual for their athlete and the workouts will seamlessly appear on the riders Stages Link calendar.
The Stages Link plan generator provides inspiration and confidence for riders to meet their goals, it is not intended to take the place of a coach.
Workout Compliance Score
Stages Link pushes workouts directly to the Stages Dash head unit. When the workout is completed, the ride file is overlaid with the prescribed workout, and generates a Workout Compliance Score (WCS). This view allows a rider and coach to see what the athlete is doing on the bike versus what was prescribed for the day. For example, were intervals performed in the correct zone? Was the recovery period actually recovery? Was the ride the prescribed duration? Etc.
The Stages Dash head unit experience is optimized via Stages Link. For example, screen settings can be optimized for the individual riders needs on Stages Link and then are pushed automatically to the Dash head unit. This eliminated dozens of button pushes on the head unit.
Power Meter Maintenance
Stages Link monitors settings in all associated sensors (e.g. Stages Power meters, Stages Dash, other brand head units and power meters). It sends alert notifications to the riders when battery voltage is below a certain limit, if there is a mismatch between the threshold values in a head unit vs. in Dash or, if a zero reset hasn’t been performed recently and more.
