    Delving into Matt Hayman’s Paris-Roubaix winning power file, we can see that pushing on the pedals over 6 hours, 9 minutes and 22 seconds required 6696 kilojoules of energy. What are the implications of kilojoules for cyclists and nutritional intake?

    How deep can you go and how much do you have left in the tank? Part of it is how much you are willing to suffer, but the bigger picture is how much energy you still have to spare during the ride. What if there was a way to model and monitor that in your training?

    We hear so much in the media about ergogenic aids and dietary supplements that lots of misconceptions can arise. We might think everybody is taking lots of cycling supplements, but is that reality? A Canadian study is one of the first to explore dietary supplement use across a wide range of athletes.

    One of my early coaches was fond of encouraging me to “just do the work.” The phrase became a personal mantra that continues to echo in my consciousness, to this day.

    Toolbox: Cycling fatigue, like love, is a many-splendoured thing. We have all been drop-dead tired at the end of a race, hard climb, or interval workout. But are all these types of fatigue the same thing, or do they affect your body in different ways?

    Michael Rasmussen,

    The societal pressure to be thin & beautiful can be an obsession to minimize body fat at all costs. Just how important is it for cyclists to be so lean, and what tests we can use to measure body fatness?

    As with all competitive sports, there is also a risk for injury in competitive bicycling. The patterns of injury in bicycling are unique since exposures include high speed, obstacles like cyclists, pedestrians and motor vehicles, and unpredictable road, environmental and weather conditions.

    germantt-champs15-martin-650

    We are a week into La Vuelta and an upcoming major appointment is the 39 km TT on September 9. While the non-contenders will generally be treating it as a semi-rest day and take it as easily as it is ever possible in pro cycling, the GC battle will be massive here. But are there fundamental differences in pacing strategy between elite riders and lower category riders?

    Tour de France  2012 stage - 16

    It’s been a record summer of heat in much of the Northern Hemisphere, and the traditionally muy caldo Vuelta d’Espana is just about to start. What happens with heat acclimatization, and can it improve performance in either the heat or in cooler conditions?

    Since the mid-1990s, the public message has been overwhelmingly prevalent and clear – hydration is important and critical to health and performance. Our own Toolbox Editor Dr. Stephen Cheung tested this assumption head-on in a unique way with a study that received a lot of media attention. What did he find?

    Tour de France 2004 Medische keuring 2

    You lean forward, driving down on to the pedals, legs exploding, chest burning, mouth wide open, sucking as much air as possible into your hungry lungs. That process of laboured breathing and ventilation is a primal force. Can we train our respiratory muscles to decrease the stress of breathing or even ride faster?

    matthews-eating-650

    Every cyclist loves to eat, and half of the fun of cycling is in having a built-in excuse to eat in large quantities.
