Here's your behind-the-scenes look in the team warm-up area at Tour de France 2022 and which smart trainers each of the teams uses.

When it comes to the massive logistical challenge that is transporting a team and all their cycling gear across 21 stages and four countries for the 2022 Tour de France, one perhaps unexpected bit of gear is their smart trainers. Each time brings a slate of trainers with them, and in some cases, multiple types of trainers – and often enough for all riders, depending on the year/stages.

That was certainly the case this past weekend at the Tour de France when opening stage was an individual time trial, as it often is. That means that each rider typically warms up on a smart trainer ahead of that stage for perhaps 25-40 minutes, before competing the relatively short 13KM stage. This will play out again later in the Tour de France on the 2nd to last stage, where a much longer 40.7km individual time trial is set to happen. There are no team time trials this year (unfortunately, they make for spectacular photos).

As is often the case for many years, I’ve outlined which trainers and power meters each team uses, as well as lots of interesting little trainer tidbits along the way. For this post, we’ve got the trainers up first. I’m skipping the bike power meters on today’s post, because power meters on time trial bikes are very often different than their road bikes they use for the rest of the Tour (which accounts for like 99% of the milage). Same goes for bike computers and such. More on that later.
