Expert bike fitting and performance with Dr Mark Harvey
This session will introduce you to the world of bike positional analysis through the use of the Retul 3D motion capture system. A practical demonstration will be given, highlighting and discussing the issues triathletes need to consider; comfort, power, aerodynamics, injury prevention. Along with positional advice, you will be guided through the sometimes confusing world of training for performance gains on the bike, as well as equipment choices to maximise speed/comfort. Leaving with a new found confidence in your bike knowledge, athletes will be able to realise their potential during the bike leg and execute a strong run from it.
Specialising in Bike fitting, cycling bio-mechanics and performance gains, Mark is quite rightly recognised as one of the leading bike fitting experts in the UK. Having worked with hundreds of cyclists, from those looking for their first bike, to race teams, World ITU triathletes and Kona qualifiers, his knowledge base and experience is huge. Fully qualified as an advanced level Retul Bike fitting technician, and a hugely experienced triathlete himself, he specialises in triathlon bike fits, either on road or tri bikes. Marks bike fitting philosophy revolves around the rider as an individual, looking to maximise their performance (power) through position optimisation (comfort).
Expert Vi-Move Running Analysis
This session will allow the runner to view 360 degree video analysis of the whole body and and receive data on their running dynamics, including ground reaction force, initial peak acceleration, ground contact time, cadence and vertical displacement. The analysis is carried on each limb ensuring that the balance and symmetry of movement is understood. All analysis takes place outside in the natural environment and away from the treadmill, for the first time laboratory quality analysis can be carried in the the environment we we actually train and compete in. The session is designed to fun and interactive, encouraging discussion about the analysis and how we can use the information to improve our running. You'll leave with a sound understanding of how to blast through the finish line.
