Publisher Comments:

Ride faster and more efficiently with Serious Cycling. Exercise scientists have unearthed a wealth of information that cyclists can use to improve their performance. However, most cyclists have never had access to this great body of knowledge.

Now you do. Serious Cycling bridges the gap between scientific observation and cycling performance. It takes the latest scientific data on physiology, biomechanics, nutrition, injury prevention and recovery, and training, and translates it into practical applications that will have an immediate impact on your personal training program. Written by one of cycling's top experts, this book will help you build endurance, increase lactate threshold, and enhance cycling strength and power.

Two-time U.S. Olympic team staff member Ed Burke has combined physiological training principles and real-world experiences to make Serious Cycling the reference that no elite cyclist should be without. The training methods and techniques he presents are what the top cyclists use. You'll learn how to

- use power meters and heart rate monitors to gauge what is happening in your body while you work out;- prevent injuries and illness, even during periods of hard training and racing;- use proper nutrition and cutting-edge supplementation strategies to train harder and recover more effectively;- make your body and your bike work with--not against--each other, - get the best, most current information on proper positioning and cycling biomechanics; and- apply effective tactics and race strategies to ensure your success in time trials, road races, and criteriums.

Whether you're a competitor, a club member, or a weekend century rider, Serious Cycling will give you the know-how--and the means to apply it--so that you can reach your full potential.

Book News Annotation:

"Serious" in this volume (first edition: 1995) means a cyclist seriously interested in racing, possibly even with Tour de France ambitions. 'Hard-core Training," "The Nutritional Edge," "Planning," and 'Racing"—the titles of the four sections, suggest the author's approach. However, non-racing bicycle enthusiasts will find much here that is interesting and useful in their own endeavors. Chapters on lactate threshold, avoiding injury, after ride recovery, overtraining, and the biomechanics of position and pedaling will help any rider who wants to prepare for the next riding season. The author (Phd) was a professor and director of the exercise science program at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
