New Sponsor: XT Racing

In my professional career I deal with data on a daily basis.  I have been working with data collection and analysis in one form or another for most of my career.

When I started working on improving my performance on the track I immediately wanted to start collecting the data so that I could observe it, measure it and ideally improve upon my performance by analyzing that data.

In the past few years I have tried nearly every lap timer on the market.  From using my iPhone to some very expensive units.  I have a nice collection of them in a box as "spares".

The unit I settled on was the GPX by XT Racing.  It provides the best GPS signal as well as the most user friendly software out of all of the items on the market currently.

I am pleased to announce that they have agreed to sponsor me for the 2015 season. Through their sponsorship I will be able to run their lap timers on both of my race bikes for the next season.  This will allow me to compare my data on the bikes against each other as well as against my fellow racers to further improve my race-craft.

If you are looking for serious data analysis on the race track, I would suggest looking at XT Racing.
