Pogačar: The performance behind the pro

This month, we temporarily depart the smart home market and enter the world of pro cycling to feature #PlumeStrong partner Tadej Pogačar! We worked with Tadej’s team at UAE Team Emirates to reveal just what it takes to be a two-time Tour de France winner. 

On a typical 4-hour mountain stage in the Tour de France, Tadej cycles 175.65km, the equivalent of running over four marathons; ascends 2,581m, the equivalent of climbing the Burj Khalifa—the tallest building in the world—over 3 times; hits a top speed of 98.6kmph, faster than a cheetah—the fastest land animal in the world—and burns through 4,300 calories, the equivalent of 48 bananas. Most impressively, Tadej’s power output is equivalent to powering 36 smart LED light bulbs continuously. And all this is only 1-day over the course of the 2-week event!
