A great podcast critically reviewing the latest cycling science

Episode 6 – A successful riders perspective of Cycling Science

In the last episode I discussed the translation of research with Dr Laurent Bannock and for this episode I wanted to explore what it is like for a successful rider and how science could guide their training.The rider is Andy Bruce who I have known since he took up cycling in 2011. In this short time he has made fantastic progress so that in 2019 he managed to win one of those stripey jerseys that we would like to have by becoming the World Masters Points Race winner. I think as well as his progress I do marvel at how Andy manages to fit in all of his training around a busy job that involves a lot of international travel.

So the podcast follows his journey to the present day trying to extract what leads to success at this level and the lessons that he has learned along the way.
