Hey there! After a bit of a break in recording at the end of 2021 we (the co-hosts) sat down for a catch-up and to talk some shop. This episode can be best described as a throwback to our roots when we used to host chats on the Clubhouse app. Just a pro cyclist, a professional coach, and a sport scientist asking each other questions, giving opinions, and having a laugh.
In this episode we discuss Australian Road Nationals, training assistant apps for cyclists, the coach’s role in an athlete’s success, and some afterthoughts about critical power.
Additionally, if you hadn’t heard the unfortunate news, Cyrus’s dad passed away suddenly towards the end of last year from a heart attack while he was out riding. Our condolences go out to the Monk family for their loss.
You can help prevent sudden cardiac death in athletes by donating to the Baker Institute. We would appreciate you supporting them!
This is a listener supported podcast, and we would be stoked if you supported us by becoming a member of The Cycling Performance Club! With your backing we can continue our mission to deliver the best in cycling performance knowledge and practical advice to you and the greater cycling community. Support The Club by clicking here!
