Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Hunter Allen is a former professional cyclist, renowned coach, and expert in using power meters to train endurance athletes. As a professional racer for 17 years, he earned more than 40 career victories in competitions around the world. He was considered a great all-arounder who had the race tactics and skills essential for success at a professional level. Upon retiring from racing, Allen became a USAC elite-level cycling coach and certified nutrition consultant. He has coached more than 400 athletes, including Olympic cyclists, champions of the European road racing circuit, and champion mountain bikers. Allen is a frequent presenter at USA Cycling's coaching certification courses and was a technical consultant to the 2008 USA Cycling BMX Olympic team.

Allen is the founder of Peaks Coaching Group, which specializes in training cyclists and other endurance athletes. He is a codeveloper of TrainingPeaks WKO software, a leading program for analyzing data from power meters. His passion is applying science and technology toward improving athletic performance.

Allen lives in Bedford, Virginia, with his wife and three children.

As the science and training editor for PezCyclingNews (web site), Stephen Cheung, PhD, focuses on translating cutting-edge scientific research into practical guidance for both cyclists and coaches. Cheung has authored more than 100 articles that cover respiratory training, altitude training, precooling and fatigue in the heat, hydration, optimal cadence, pacing strategies, jet lag, supplements, hypoxic stress, and the reliability of exercise testing protocols.

Cheung holds a Canada research chair in environmental ergonomics at Brock University, where his research focuses on the effects of thermal stress on human physiology and performance. He is also the author of Advanced Environmental Exercise Physiology (Human Kinetics, 2009). Cheung helped to establish the sport science support network for the Canadian Sport Centre in Atlantic Canada and has consulted with the Canadian national rowing and snowboard teams on specific sport performance projects. Cheung has also served as a cycling official and as a board member of the Canadian Cycling Association.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book, as long as you remember what it is 31. Juli 2012
Von CyclingGuy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Most cycling books tell you how to put together a training plan, how to draft, and some basics about race tactics.

This is not one of those books.

This is a book that tells you, as of 2012, what the current studies say about all the stuff you read online and in magazines. What cadence is most efficient? Do elliptical rings really work? What is the best way to pace a TT?

Most importantly, it's not just one person's opinion. It's a collection of the results of studies and interpretation of how to apply the findings.

The book is not for everyone. Not everyone is into keeping up with the latest studies. To be of maximum value, the book will need to be updated every 18 months or so.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Must Read for cyclist. 12. April 2014

Good book. Must read for cycling coaches or serious cycling athletes. Hunter gives you the information you need to take your training or those you train to a higher level. It gives you clues to figure out what works for different athletes. Great information summarized from tons of research.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Useful, but short of expectations 3. Mai 2012
Von EAJN - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was expecting a lot of practical guidance after reading previews and promotional materials for this book. While I found quite a bit of useful information, the book comes up short on detailed recommendations. The first four chapters provide a very good primer on how to interpret research, the physiology of cycling and how the physiological requirements of the sport translate into training. While I agree with the previous comment stating that most of this information can be found on the web, it is well presented and follows a logical sequence.

Chapter 5 on training load and overtraining is, in my opinion, the most important chapter in the book. Finding the optimal training load is very difficult and knowing when to rest is critical. It is almost impossible to provide a single recipe for finding optimal training load, but this chapter provides a good set of tools for helping people analyze their training. While the Performance Management Chart has some real limitations, I have found it quite useful in managing my training. Adding the other considerations listed in chapter 5 allows for further fine tuning.

As more of a mass start racer than a time trialist, I found chapter 6 to be uninteresting, but it should have value to time trialists and triathletes.

Chapter 7 was the most disappointing in the book. It is nothing more than an infomercial for the various fit systems and offers no practical advice beyond the need to find a good bike fitter.

Chapter 8 is also light on practical recommendations.

Chapters 9 and 10, cover fueling, hydration and environmental considerations. The review of current research on these topics is useful and there are practical recommendations for incorporating the research into your training and racing.
