SPRING HILL, Tenn. - Known as one of the most laid-back riders at the track; Travis Preston’s easygoing attitude and humorous nature give him an edge that fellow riders love. His lifestyle may seem relaxed and carefree, but the second his bike hits the track, "Presto" means business. This is why he trains with the Ripxx Personal Measurement Device.
Preston recently concluded his 12 year AMA professional racing career in 2009, but is nowhere close to exiting the racing world. He now offers rider clinics and training schools for amateur riders who have the drive to be better. When working with the up-and-coming riders Preston uses his secret training weapon - the Ripxx.
The Ripxx Personal Measurement Device is a small device about the size of a cell phone that can be attached to the rider by using the included holster. It contains a suite of sensors, along with a GPS tracking chip that records every move the athlete makes. Location, orientation, acceleration, velocity, altitude, air time, lap time, and number of jumps can all be measured. Following the run, Ripxx software enables the athlete to view his or her performance and results. This is what makes Ripxx so convenient for trainers like Preston.
Following a recent training session Preston said, "This product is a great training tool to use when working with different riders. I can actually pay attention to the riders on the track without having to keep up with multiple stopwatches."
Preston is currently training Daniel Baker; the 16-year-old rising star who along with Fly Racing and Oakley, is also sponsored by the Ripxx Racing Team. RJ Cook, the 11-year-old Loretta Lynn’s qualifier and Ripxx Racing Team member, is also one of Preston’s trainees. Preston’s experience and training ability is undoubtedly shining like a light through these riders, with much thanks to the Rippx device.
Training is one of the utmost strategies when it comes to excellent performance, and Preston understands exactly how it should work. He has been a strong partner in the development of the updated Ripxx software. Preston recommended a theoretical lap time to be included on the device, and Ripxx made it happen. The new application was recently launched.
Travis Preston is doing what it takes to stay on the cutting edge of mx technology. By using the Ripxx Personal Measurement Device, he is always one step ahead of the game. Training to be the best rider has never seemed so easy.
