Chris Case is the Managing Editor of VeloNews Magazine. He joined VeloNews as managing editor in 2012. Chris has a regular series called “A Case for Suffering”, which includes tales of the La Ruta Mountain Bike race (A three day mountain bike event across Costa Rica) and Dirty Kanza 200 (a 200-mile gravel race). In his own words, Chris “needed a new challenge”, which led him and his colleague and friend Nick Legan to try Cycling’s Hour Record.

Nick Legan jumped straight into wrenching for a few years at the Pro Peloton bike shop in Boulder, CO. He then began a seven-year stint in the professional ranks, most recently working for RadioShack at the Tour de France and the Amgen Tour of California. He also worked for Garmin-Slipstream, CSC, Toyota-United, Health Net and Ofoto. Nick served as the VeloNews tech editor from 2010-2012.

He is based in Birmingham, UK, and is the Director of AeroCoach LTD, as well as working with RST Sport and World Tour Teams.

In her excellent blog, Molly Shaffer Van Houweling claims to have inspiration for attempting cycling’s hour record after watching the successful Jens Voigt effort. Encouraged by her “most cycling obsessed member of the Van Houweling household”  husband Rob, the initial plan was to attempt a US age group record. After a little research however, it was decided that Molly would go after the US Elite and Pan American Record. The initial record is a great story in itself, and then Molly and her team decided to add another chapter in February, as she attempted to set the bar even higher.

You can find the blog and follow Molly's progress here:

Here is video of Molly's Pan American and US Elite hour record in Mexico.

Michael is again kind enough to join us to discuss the most recent hour attempt of Alex Dowsett, and to preview the much anticipated attempt of Sir Bradley Wiggins. Be sure to follow Michael on twitter @Doctor_Hutch and his twitter feed will be the perfect compliment to watching Brad Wiggins make history, or not.....Thanks for downloading the show, contact me at ttpodcast@yahoo.com and follow me on twitter @markflorence11.

From Birmingham, UK we welcome back Xavier Disley. He is the lead analyst for Aero-Coach in the UK which specializes in finding an optimal mix of aerodynamics and power production outside of a wind tunnel in velodromes. He is also a coach for RST Sport LTD and lectures on biomechanics to sports science students. Xavier’s podcast analyzing the hour attempts was very well received and I have been thinking of ways to concentrate his knowledge to topics that would be informative yet not overwhelming in content. I thought it might be helpful to concentrate on some basic information to use as a foundation for a good, sustainable aero position.

Apr 11, 2015

We continue with Dr. Will Mangar of InDurance (http://www.indurance.co.uk/, @in_durance) and our discussion of athletic health as measured by strategic blood testing. Thanks again to Billy Oliver for the show suggestion. Thanks much for downloading the show. If you have a question or comment you can contact me at ttpodcast@yahoo.com and on twitter I am @markflorence11. 

Apr 4, 2015

InDurance describes themselves as a new concept aimed at people who take their training seriously with a focus on the fusion of health, technology and performance. They present Swim, Bike and Run athletes with essential self-tracking tools designed by sports medics, top coaches and professional athletes using blood profiling. Dr. Will Mangar is the Medical Director and Founder and he joins us for part one of this two part episode. In this day and age of quantifying everything, perhaps we are forgetting the most important thing, the athlete. You can find more information at http://www.indurance.co.uk/ and @in_durance.

B Xavier Disley, PhD (@xavierdisley) is based in Birmingham, UK and he has a PhD in cycling physiology and biomechanics. His work focuses on optimizing bike fit to the specifics of the rider, with extensive work in power production at the pedal.
