Cycling performance is multifactorial. It encompasses muscular, energetic and psychological qualities, as well as technical mastery (movement strategy, equipment used). Equipment plays an important and growing role in sports performance, as it benefits from scientific advances in fields as varied as materials science, simulation and biomechanics. But is it so important that it outweighs the influence of the cyclist's physical qualities on performance? To the point of endangering the cyclist? In short, is it the bike that makes the performance, or the rider?
Elements of an answer with the conference "Apport de la science dans l'optimisation des équipements en cyclisme" (The contribution of science to the optimization of cycling equipment)presented by Frédérique Hintzy, teacher-researcher at the Laboratoire Interuniversitaire de Biologie de la Motricité (LIBM), to be held on Thursday, October 5, 2023 at 6.30pm at the Turbine Sciences in Annecy (entrance via Cinéma la Turbine).
