Cycle Road Racing

Tom Newman
Cycle Road Racing provides a practical and instructional guide for those entering into cycle road racing, and those improving their performance. It covers the latest developments in racing and cycle technology, and guides the reader through all stages of racing, from setting up the bike correctly to race day itself. The book includes material on: clothing, equipment and setting up your bike; training, including the use of turbo training in winter and sample training plans; techniques such as cornering, climbing and descending; avoiding injury and recovery after injury and finally and very importantly, nutrition. There is also in-depth coverage of time trials and veterans racing and a section on computerisation of racing, such as use of sat navs and computerised training aids.
