In cycling at race speeds, 90% of total resistance opposing motion, R T(N) T depends on aerodynamic drag of air, which is directly proportional to the effective frontal area, AC d(m2). R T was measured on a cyclist, in an open velodrome, in order to evaluate AC d in four different positions on a traditional bicycle: upright d position (UP), dropped position (DP), aero position (AP) and Obree's position (OP : the hands in support under the chest, the forearms tucked on the arms, the trunk tilted… CONTINUE READING
