  • PURPOSE To quantify the power-output demands of men's road-cycling stage racing using a direct measure of power output. METHODS Power-output data were collected from 207 races over 6 competition years on 31 Australian national male road cyclists. Subjects performed a maximal graded exercise test in the laboratory to determine maximum aerobic-power output, and bicycles were fitted with SRM power meters. Races were described as flat, hilly, or criterium, and linear mixed modeling was used to… CONTINUE READING
