In order to quantify the seasonal variability of haemoglobin mass (Hb(mass)) in cyclists during a competitive season, and investigate whether variability is associated with changes in training load or performance, Hb(mass) was measured in 10 internationally competitive female road cyclists approximately once per month for 2-10 months via CO-rebreathing.(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the fluid and food consumed during a men's and women's professional road-cycling tour. METHODS Eight men (age 25 +/- 5 y, body mass 71.4 +/- 7.4 kg, and height 177.4 +/- 4.5 cm) and 6 women (age 26 +/- 4 y, body mass 62.5 +/- 5.6 kg, and height 170.4 +/- 5.2 cm) of the Australian Institute of Sport Road Cycling squads participated in(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to quantify the effects of moderate-high altitude on power output, cadence, speed and heart rate during a multi-day cycling tour. METHODS Power output, heart rate, speed and cadence were collected from elite male road cyclists during maximal efforts of 5, 15, 30, 60, 240 and 600 s. The efforts were completed in a(More)
