Super aerodynamic sprinting positions developed at ECU are helping cyclists improve their performance.

Aerodynamics are everything in the world of professional cycling and now ECU researchers are helping the world's best riders boost their performance with innovative new techniques.

Wind resistance is one of the biggest forces a cyclist has to overcome in a professional race, so it makes sense to ensure the best riders in the world are using the most aerodynamic positions possible.

ECU researcher Associate Professor Chris Abbiss is using high-tech motion capture technology and bio-mechanics to balance peak power output and aerodynamic positioning for professional cyclists in sprints.

His team from ECU's School of Medical and Health Sciences are working with the best professional athletes in the world.
