Show Notes

Power profiling is a unique and massively important practice because it can answer so many fundamental questions related to an individual cyclist’s performance and training. For many, the term ‘power profile’ conjures images of Excel tables or bar graphs of mean maximal power data. However, these are just a couple of the many methods one could use to power profile a cyclist. Indeed, the practice of power profiling has evolved substantially since its inception well over a decade ago.

In this two part series we discuss power profiling with Dr. Peter Leo. Dr. Leo is a researcher, coach, and endurance training scientist at AusCycling. But more importantly, in the context of this series, he is the first author of a recent comprehensive scientific review on the topic of power profiling cyclists (written by coaches, for coaches). Peter guides us through the different methods used to power profile cyclists, recent advancements, and best practice. These episodes with Dr. Leo are certainly a must listen for any coach and/or serious cyclist!

Introducing The Cycling Performance Club Podcast!

Welcome to The Cycling Performance Club Podcast!  Introducing a new podcast called The Cycling Performance Club Podcast! And as you might have already been able to guess, it’s about all things cycling training, performance, and science. The exciting part of this show is the format. It’s a panel show that is recorded live on a weekly call with a panel of scientists, pro-cyclists, and cutting-edge coaches. Topics covered on this episode:2:00 What does it mean to train with Science? How does this approach compare to other coaching methods? 27:00 Should coaches be prescribing ‘bad weather training’ for athletes preparing for races that may be in cold or wet conditions? 1:01:12 What strategies can be implemented when returning from a crash? What role do coaches have in both the physiological and psychological return to fitness?

Dr. Dajo Sanders - Research evolved into practice at the highest level of cycling performance - Part 2 of 2

In this episode we continue our discussion with Dr. Dajo Sanders (part 2 of 2), an individual whose skill and expertise in the realm of cycling performance are well developed. Dajo is a prolific researcher in many aspects of endurance training and specializes in the very distinct research cohort that is well-trained high-performance cyclists. He is also a member of the performance group at Team DSM where he uses his experience and knowledge to help World Tour cyclists perform at their absolute best. Herein, we discuss with Dajo his research and practice in monitoring training load in cyclists and also what cycling performance research he is excited about.

Dr. Teun van Erp - How do World Tour cyclists actually train and perform in races? - Part 1 of 2

In this two part series we chat with Dr. Teun van Erp, current data scientist with INEOS Grenadiers, about how World Tour cyclists train and perform during competitions. In our opinion, given Tuen’s extensive research and experience working with World Tour cyclists, he is one of the best people in the field to discuss this topic with. In this episode we take aim at measures of training load in training and racing. One of the measures discussed is TSS - aka, the training stress score from TrainingPeaks. Teun is better placed than probably anyone in performance cycling to talk about TSS as he’s spent a lot of time investigating TSS to understand its limitations across different scenarios. So join us on this journey to see how training load measures available to all of us are used at the highest level of the sport!
