 22.07.2005   Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team & AMD64 Technology
 

Trek Design Team Executes Complete Redesign of Time Trial Bike in Four Weeks Using Industry-Leading HP and BOXX Workstations Powered by AMD Opteron Processors


SUNNYVALE, CA -- July 21, 2005 --AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced that current Tour de France leader and six-time Tour champion Lance Armstrong is riding Trek bikes designed in just four weeks on workstations powered by the AMD Opteron processor with Direct Connect Architecture. Trek’s Advanced Concept Group completely redesigned the Time Trial bike, known as the "TT," on the AMD64-based workstations from HP and BOXX to create the new "TTx" in record time, giving the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team a competitive edge at the Tour de France. As a result, on July 5, 2005 the team broke the 10-year-old Tour de France speed record for a team time trial by almost two seconds, averaging an astounding 57.31 kph in the 67.5 km stage.

"AMD64 technology continues to enable our riders and Trek to test the realm of possibilities in bike design and performance," said Lance Armstrong. "AMD’s collaboration with Trek has provided our team with fast, solid bikes that give us a distinct competitive advantage to help separate us from the rest of the field."

In April, Trek’s Advanced Concept Group was tasked with completely redesigning the time trial bike in an unprecedented 30 days. This accelerated timeframe was required in order to give the Discovery Channel cyclists adequate time to test the bike before the Tour de France. Prior to last April, the quickest redesign of similar scope on any Trek bicycle was four months.

"In order to consistently improve bicycle performance for our customers, Trek regularly looks to improve our product development tools. The mind-blowing computing power of AMD64 technology, combined with great solutions from HP and BOXX, play a key role in these improvements," said Michael Sagan, senior designer and technology principal, Advanced Concepts Group, Trek Bicycle Corp. "AMD is the processor provider of choice for businesses like ours that require world-class performance and execution powered by customer-focused innovation."

Sagan attributes a significant portion of the reduced design time to the computing power of the AMD Opteron processor-based HP xw9300 Workstation. Specifically, Trek experienced speed improvements of more than 50 percent when running their Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software, which improves the bike’s aerodynamics, on the dual-processing HP xw9300 Workstation. Performance increases like this allowed the team to test far more design iterations in less time, thereby helping to ensure their ability to converge on the optimal solution.

Founded in 1976 in Waterloo, Wisconsin, Trek is a world leader in bicycle products and accessories, with 1,500 employees worldwide who incorporate the most advanced technology available into Trek products, resulting in many industry innovations throughout the company's 25-year history.

"AMD is proud to provide the cutting-edge technology to Trek that is so critical to Team Discovery’s success. Trek engineers have used AMD64 technology to build the fastest and most sophisticated racing machines in pro cycling history," said Henri Richard, executive vice president and chief sales and marketing officer, AMD. "Helping Lance Armstrong successfully compete for a seventh consecutive Tour de France victory underscores how AMD enables great competitors and companies like Trek to break free."

AMD’s partnership with the Discovery Channel Team is built for speed, efficiency, and success. AMD technology helps to provide the Discovery Cycling Team with the winning edge in three key areas: design and development; testing and training; and communications.
