Renowned cycling biomechanics pioneer, Phil Cavell, explores the growing trend of middle-aged and older cyclists seeking to achieve high-level performance. Using contributions from medical experts, leading coaches, ex-professionals and pro-team doctors, he produces a practical guide for mature riders who want to stay healthy, avoid injury - and maximize their achievement levels. Cycling has seen a participation uplift unprecedented in any sport, especially in the 40-, 50- and 60-year-old age groups. These athletes are the first statistically significant cohort to maintain, or even begin, genuine athletic performance beyond middle-age. But, just because we can continue to tune the engine into old age, does that mean we should? And, what do these training efforts do to the ageing human chassis? This book answers those questions and offers a guide to those elongating their performance window. Using case studies and expert contributions from all aspects of the sport, The Midlife Cyclist looks at cycling as an ageing person's exercise of choice, the physical implications of hard training, and the use of sport medication and specific training in combating them. The Midlife Cyclist offers a gold standard road-map for the mature cyclist who aims to train, perform and even race at the highest possible level.
