Examination of Physiological Factors Influencing High Performance Sprint Cycling

This research plan will provide a significant contribution to high performance cycling through collaborative research aimed at enhancing the identification, preparation and presentation of Australian cyclists. The primary research theme of this project is the examination of factors influencing sprint cycling performance with a specific focus on the interactions between cycling aerodynamics, power output and tactics. This project will involve several laboratory- and field-based research studies in order to develop tactical and training strategies to maximise performance of Australia’s best sprint cyclists.
