Bio-mechanical Screening for Competitive Cyclists
This year Team Movistar have employed a bio-mechanic (Jon Irriberri) to screen all their cyclists for bio-mechanical issues. Team HTC Columbia also have a similar method of pre-empting injury by forseeing problems and correcting them with bike fit and physio. But this is still rare within the racing community. The attitude, íf it ain´t broke don´t fix it´ is all too prevalent. But happens if it does break, or if you are wasting valuable power?
Nick Dinsdale has produced a convincing medical article explaining the benefits of pre-empting potential bio-mechanical problems. Please read below- The benefits of anatomical and biomechanical screening of competitive cyclists
