Overview

Presented in a clear, didactic style, this new addition to the Handbook of Sports Medicine and Science series, focuses on the techniques of conditioning, road cycling biomechanics, nutrition and hydration for road cycling, trauma, and other medical problems encountered by the competitive road cyclist. Edited by two leading world authorities, Road Cycling draws together expertise from France (from the Federation Francaise de Cyclisme), Holland, Italy and the United States (from the US Olympic Training Center) to present an authoritative reference for all those actively involved in the sport.

The Handbook of Sports Medicine and Science is an ongoing series of specialist reference volumes, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, designed specifically for the use of team coaches who have academic preparation in the basic sciences, medical doctors, physical therapists, competitors and related other health professionals.
