The World Congress of Cycling Science 2014 invites coaches, sports scientists, medical practitioners, students and researchers to share knowledge from the world of cycling science.
Its aim is to further the use of science in cycling and disseminate relevant information to practitioners. The conference will also provide a forum for discussion of performance enhancement, with a focus on the Tour de France.
The conference programme has been designed to stimulate and inspire future collaboration and research-informed practice for the benefit of a new generation of cyclists.
About the organisers
The conference is organised by the University of Kent’s School of Sport and Exercise Sciences (SSES), with other partners.
Located in Kent (South East England), SSES has a particular research focus on endurance exercise performance.
As part of SSES, the Endurance Research Group features academics whose aim is to understand and improve endurance performance by studying training process and adaptation, exercise and muscle physiology, and perceptual and cognitive processes.
The scientific quality and practical applicability of SSES research is testified by vast output in high-impact, refereed international journals devoted to both theoretical and applied aspects of endurance exercise performance.
