Cycling is highly regarded as one of the important sports in international tournaments. The bicycle statistical information parameters can be used to improve and refine the cyclist training. Knowledge of the bicycle parameters, for instance pedal power, cadence and speed can improve the cyclists' performance. Above all these parameters, the pedal power considered as the most important parameter to improve the athlete's performance. There are two common methods for calculating the pedal power… CONTINUE READING
