Performance Cycling: The Science of Success training guide published

Sports science is big business, not least in cycling, and a new book  – Performance Cycling: The Science of Success – has been published with the aim of bringing together the latest training, nutritional and recovery strategies relevant to the sport.

Edited by Dr James Hopker and Dr Simon Jobson, two sports scientists working at the forefront of cycling research, the book looks to “give the reader an evidence-based view of the major components within the sport of cycling that have a positive effect on performance,” according to Olympic track cycling gold medallist Jason Queally, who has written the foreword.

As would be expected from a training manual based on scientific research, it’s text-heavy – it’ll take considerable time and dedication to get through all 322 pages, covering everything from training with a power meter to nutrition, across a range of cycle-sport disciplines.

Queally adds: “The book has been written in a way that will appeal to anyone who has an inquisitive mind and wants to better understand the sport of cycling from an objective point of view.”
