(June 21, 2016) Boulder, CO— Leading power meter manufacturer, Stages Cycling,
has established a technology partnership with Today’s Plan, an emerging web-based
training & analytics company.

Stages and Todays Plan

The partnership will see the creation of a Stages Cycling training and data analysis
platform. This new online system allows Stages Cycling to create specific training
programs, tailor data analysis and leverage educational content from Stages’ specialists.
“Our goal is to make it even easier for every Stages Cycling customer to train with power
data and to analyze this data to help them improve. By doing so, we’re helping our
customers get the maximum benefit from their Stages product” says Doug Crawford, VP
of Stages Cycling “We have a lot of in-house expertise on how best to train with power
and we’re very excited by the opportunity to partner with Today’s Plan to bring those
new concepts to life.”

Software development is already under way with the initial beta version of the site
expected to go live in early August 2016. The two companies have been working closely
to conceptualize and design the initial foundation for the platform, as well as define a
longer-term development roadmap.

“Today’s Plan is thrilled to be working collaboratively with Stages Cycling on this project”
says Ben Bowley, CEO of Today Plan. “I have spent most of my working career in
consumer electronics companies including 14 years at Apple, so I understand the ‘ease
of use’ expectations that consumers have and know that the integration between
hardware and software is the key to that. Since we began talking to Stages two years
ago, it was clear that we had many shared goals, including modernizing cycling training
by making it simple for customers to undertake structured training which capitalized on
increasingly popular sensor technology, particularly power meters.”
