PURPOSE To determine which laboratory measurement best predicts 40 km cycling time-trial (TT) performance. METHODS Fifteen male cyclists performed lactate-threshold (LT), ventilatory-threshold (VT), 5 km and 40 km TT. Key variables of interest were Watts at thresholds. For VT determination we used: breakpoint of ventilatory equivalent of oxygen (VE/VO2); breakpoint of ventilatory equivalent of carbon dioxide (VE/VCO2); V-slope; respiratory exchange ratio (RER)=1 and 0.95. For LT we used… CONTINUE READING
