New evidence-based research every serious cyclist should know about.

Training for Cyclists draws on the latest evidence-based thinking in sports science research – new findings that probably won’t percolate through to the general sporting press for many, many months, if they make it at all…

It’s a rare opportunity to assess the latest thinking on bike training and racing for yourself, and decide how best to integrate it into your own training and conditioning regimes.

The original price of this fantastic training guide is $59.99. But with our special online discount, you pay only $34.99 (£21.69), a full 42% off!

Read our brand new sports report today and here are some of the facts you’ll learn:

  • How to get the best ‘fit’ between your body and your bike – a position that’s optimises your power output without being uncomfortable, or opening you up to the possibility of chronic injury
  • How to build the mental strength you need to prevent yourself ‘cracking’ under the pressure of competition in the final stages of a track pursuit event or a big sprint finish on the road.
  • How to make sure you don’t overtrain – ironically amateur cyclists are at more danger of overdoing it than are pro cyclists and we explain why this is so
  • What’s the best sports drink for cyclists – and how much liquid you should take in during an event or long training ride to ensure optimal hydration and glycogen consumption
  • Are male cyclists really at risk of infertility from spending too many hours in the saddle? We put this controversy to rest once and for all.
  • How core body exercises can contribute to greater power transfer to the pedals – especially when combined with a higher-than-usual pedalling cadence
  • Why cycling is an excellent cross-training activity for athletes with a heavy training and competition workload, those recovering from injury, or those seeking a measurable increase in explosive leg speed
  • How your level of hydration impacts directly on the speed of lactate accumulation in your muscles – and what you can do about it
