Training, recovery and nutrition – Triathletes Holy Trinity


Training, recovery and nutrition. When I hold lectures about triathlon I always point out what increasing performance is all about. It’s those three words. Simple as that.

Nutrition is also highly debatable and … Fortsett å lese Training, recovery and nutrition – Triathletes Holy Trinity

Hjelmpåbud – et livsfarlig tiltak


Med ujevne mellomrom er det diskusjoner og ytringer angående hjelmpåbud for syklister. Sist ute var Geraint Thomas, årets Tour de France vinner, som mente at det var ingen grunn til at det ikke burde være påbudt.
