Show Notes

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.

Simon Jones - Coaching, science, and a post-marginal gains world

In this episode we have a conversation with performance specialist, Simon Jones. Don’t know who that is? Well, with a performance career in cycling for over 25 years there isn’t much he hasn’t done. In fact, we're sure if you’ve been a fan of cycling for any amount of time, you know of a rider or a team he’s worked with.He was once Head of Performance Support and Innovation at Team Sky, but prior to that he started out as a sports science graduate from Cardiff University and became a sports scientist with British Cycling just months later. He would go on to coach the Great Britain team pursuit riders through several Olympic cycles before taking up a job managing the Western Australia Institute of Sport, then moving to Team Sky, before his last role as AusCycling Performance Director for the last Olympic cycle.And when someone has been around a high-performance environment for as long as Simon (sorry if that makes you sound old Simon), they would have seen many things come and go - so it was nice to hear what he prioritizes in coaching and cycling performance. Herein we meander through multiple topics such as coaching, marginal gains, performance teams, training load, and more with Simon. Give this episode a listen to learn from a true veteran in cycling performance!

Is there really an "Ultimate FTP Builder" session?, Session Failure, Training and Carbohydrate Ingestion

Host topics covered in this episode:1:25 What happens when an athlete can’t complete a session? What is the role of the athlete and the role of the coach in this scenario? How can sessions be prescribed to prevent this from happening? 28:40 How does carbohydrate combustion and availability influence placement of harder sessions in a training program? How much carbohydrate is burnt during a session and how much recovery is required to replenish the stores? 47:00 Which session is best for increasing FTP? 54:40 Why is FTP a priority? 55:50 Threshold training to increase threshold 66:30 Training intensity distribution studies 70:10 Polarised training as a means to increase FTP 88:35 If there was a perfect session for increasing FTP, how would it be included in a training program?

Dr. Dajo Sanders - Research evolved into practice at the highest level of cycling performance - Part 1 of 2

There are many components within endurance training. Take for example field-testing, training intensity distribution, or training load. Each of these components have dozens of papers in the scientific literature that can help guide a cyclist’s training and a coach’s practice. However, contrary to what one might think, taking findings from research, evaluating them, and then effectively putting them into practice is a skill unto itself. In this two part series we talk with Dr. Dajo Sanders, an individual whose skill and expertise in this area 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. In this episode we discuss with Dajo his role with Team DSM, and his research and practice in both field testing cyclists and training intensity distributions.
