Show Notes

Dr. Paolo Menaspà is the current Chief Science Officer at the Australian Institute of Sport and has had a long and interesting career in the world of high-performance. Previously, he worked as the Head of Performance Solutions at AusCycling, was a performance manager and coach for Team BikeExchange and the Australian National Team, and a sport scientist and coach at Sport Service Mapei.

We discuss with Paolo what it means to be a generalist; how his role as a generalist and solutions provider has helped improve the performance of elite and world-class cyclists; the skill set needed to work in high-performance sport; and how his passion for cycling, and passions outside the sport, influenced his career path and practice.
