Examining the research into old-school ideas in cycling

The dizzying pace of technological improvements has been such that cycling has often been likened to Formula 1 racing on two wheels.

Unfortunately, the basic awareness and application of the science of training and fitness are lagging behind for many amateurs and even professional cyclists.

Rather than examine the research into old-school ideas, many coaches and athletes blindly accept them simply because they’ve been handed down through the generations.

This concept of an evidence-based approach to cycling science and training is the philosophy underlying this book, whose goal is to bring a science-first perspective to cycling by digging into the scientific basis of established beliefs.

Cutting Edge Cycling
will be equally useful to both athletes and coaches by creating a common knowledge set and improving communication between them.
