OBJECTIVES To examine the relations between maximal and submaximal indices of aerobic fitness and off road cycling performance in a homogeneous group of high level mountain bikers. METHODS 12 internationally competitive mountain bikers completed the study. Maximum oxygen uptake (Vo(2max)), peak power output (PPO), power output (PO), and oxygen uptake (Vo(2)) at first (VT) and second (RCT) ventilatory thresholds were measured in the laboratory, and correlated with race time during a cross… CONTINUE READING
