Wind tunnel lessons

We all want to be faster. In order to go faster, you have four choices – increase power; reduce your weight, therefore improving your watts per kilogram; improve positioning and aerodynamics on the bike; or buy fast, and usually expensive, equipment.

Improve aerodynamics does not cost physical fatigue and allows you to get reliable results, especially when cycling on the flat. One thing we have learned? The worst things to assume is getting a rider lower will automatically make them faster. By dropping the front you may lower some aero drag, but you may lose a lot of pedaling efficiency, and may not be able to hold it throughout an event. Especially in long time trials, granfondo or in medium and long distance triathlons.
