In this Roundtable episode Jason has a conversation with his athlete, Tony, about his preparation for this year’s U.S. Masters Road Nationals in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
However, this conversation is significantly different from a typical discussion about preparing a rider for their peak event. First, Albuquerque at the time Masters Nationals was scheduled is known to be exceptionally hot and is an environmental factor that had to be considered and prepared for. But second, and even more unique to this preparation story, Dr. Tony Wolf is a Post-Doctoral research scientist in thermoregulation at Penn State, AND a cycling coach!
Did two environmental physiologists/cycling coaches working together create a dream team result, or was it simply too many cooks in the kitchen? Listen and find out how these two scientists progressed Tony towards his peak race in the heat, and all of the important considerations they made along the way.
