We model the instantaneous power applied by a cyclist on a velodrome— for individual pursuits and other individual time trials— taking into account its straights, circular arcs, and connecting transition curves. The forces opposing the motion are air resistance, rolling resistance, lateral friction and drivetrain resistance. We examine the constant-cadence and constant-power cases, and discuss their results, including an examination of empirical adequacy of the model.

On maximizing VAM for a given power: Slope, cadence, force and gear-ratio considerations
For a given power, the mean ascent speed (VAM) increases monotonically with the slope. Also, to maximize the ascent speed, the slope needs to be constant. These properties--which are theorems
