Time Trial Cycling

bradley-wiggins_2554887b

Time trials often take place during WorldTours and are considered to be a true test of endurance and speed, as riders can’t take advantage of slipstreams provided by their teammates. For this reason, riders must also be as aerodynamic as possible to counteract wind as much as possible, wearing special clothing designed to reduce drag. Competitors race alone and the lowest time wins.

Time trial bikes are built to ride on the road whilst being as aerodynamic as possible . Riders position their arms in-line with the wind and allow their back to sit as low and flat as possible, in an effort to reduce frontal area exposure and obtain the maximum amount of power from their legs.

Track Cycling

Wiggins_Cavendish_2008

Track is an exciting form of competitive cycling that takes place inside a velodrome; a special sports arena with a steeply banked oval, 250m track. The 45 degree angle allows cyclists to carry as much speed as possible, which is often up to 50mph! There are different types of track cycling ranging from individual and team sprints to endurance events.

Track cyclists wear a special kit designed to be as aerodynamic as possible, as this is a crucial factor in winning a track race. Riders wear tight, one-piece skin suits and a helmet with an elongated fin to reduce drag. Track bikes are also designed to counteract wind drag, and will often feature a disc back wheel rather than the usual spoked wheel. Handlebars are long and narrow, sticking out from the front rather than to the sides. This helps track riders to lean far forward with elbows tucked beneath them and a straight, flat back.
