The purpose of this study was to compare the heart rate responses during cross-country skiing as a leading skier, as well as in a drafting situation, 2 m behind the leader. Six male cross-country ski racers, paired for VO2max skied a 2-km course (two loops of 1 km) using the skating techniques at a fixed speed (5.6 m.s-1) on two different occasions, once as a leading skier, the other as a drafter. A recovery period of 30 min was allowed between the two trials. Heart rates (HR) were monitored… CONTINUE READING
