Aspects of modelling performance in competitive cycling

Abstract

The aim of this thesis was to design, construct and validate a model to be used for enhancing the performance of competitive cyclists in road time trials. Modelling can be an effective tool for identifying methods to enhance performance in sports with a high mechanical component such as cycling. The thesis questioned whether an effective road cycling model could be built. Existing models were analysed and found to have insufficient predictive accuracy to make them effective under general time trial conditions. It was hypothesised that an effective and generalised model could be developed.
