About this title


Contains the most recent advances in physiological, biomechanical, nutritional, and technical advances in cycling. The book provides insights and practical applications to improve cycling training and performance. The book is divided into 11 chapters covering a broad range of topics of interest to serious cyclists. It examines: criteria for selecting comfortable and efficient riding equipment; the physics, engineering, and performance of mountain bike suspensions; the effects of body size and weight, as well as body positioning, on cycling performance; optimal pedalling cadence and equipment adjustment; recent findings related to the biomechanics of cycling; the energy cost of cycling, and how to optimally refuel the body for endurance cycling; resistance training programmes for off-road cyclists; and the prevention of knee injuries in cycling. Each chapter of the book also contains suggestions for future research, which point towards the next horizon in cycling science.
