Over the past decade, a growing body of academic literature on the economics of road cycling has been amassed. This book is the first volume to bring together a majority of the academic research and knowledge on the economics and management of professional road cycling. Each chapter treats a particular economic aspect of the sport, from organizational structure to marketing, labor, game theory, and competitive balance. By discussing the existing research and complementing it with the newest concepts, ideas and data on professional road cycling, this book sets an agenda for further academic research while providing insights for all stakeholders in cycling: governments, cycling's governing bodies, team managers, race organizers, sponsors, media. Furthermore, the unique characteristics of the sport of cycling explored within this text inform broader management and industrial organization research, as they extend analyses of team labor, broadcast revenue generation, and sponsorship financing models. This book is equally of interest to academic researchers, students studying sports economics, and policy makers, such as race organizers, team managers, and sponsors.

Four years ago, discouraged and depleted from his illness, Lance Armstrong traveled to Boone, North Carolina, in a last-ditch effort to get his cycling career back on track. Through fog and chilly rains, Armstrong attacked the rugged hills of the High Country. After a grueling climb to the top of Beech Mountain, Armstrong knew he was back. In his autobiography, It's Not About the Bike, Armstrong said, Boone began to feel like the Holy Land to me, a place I had come to on a pilgrimage. If I ever have any serious problems again, I know that I will go back to Boone and find an answer. If you've biked in the Blue Ridge High Country, it's no surprise that the mountains helped turn Armstrong around. Here, road cyclists can find natural beauty, challenging climbs, and exhilarating descents, if they know where to go. Road Cycling the Blue Ridge High Country now makes this information available for everyone. In this guide, Murphy gives detailed descriptions of more than 25 routes that cover six mountain and foothill counties in the northwestern corner of North Carolina as well as counties in southwestern Virginia and northeast Tennessee. The terrain on these rides varies from nearly flat to almost wall-like. Elevations on the rides range from 5,500 feet above sea level down to 1,000 feet. With each tour, you'll find a short synopsis of the ride, an in-depth description of what you'll encounter, detailed directions, information about road characteristics and cautions, elevation details accompanied by an elevation chart, a map of the route, a list of food and services along the route, and other options for outdoor activities nearby. Whether you're a visiting cyclist looking for routessuitable for your abilities or a resident cyclist in search of some new favorites, Road Cycling the Blue Ridge High Country is the perfect guide to an area that Bicycling magazine says offers some of the best road riding in the world.

Cycling performance is strongly dependent on aerodynamic drag, of which the majority is attributable to the rider. Previous studies have shown the importance of optimising athlete posture on the bicycle for individual time-trial events. This article identifies that performance in road cycling and draft-legal triathlon can be improved through aerodynamic optimisation of the athlete's posture. Nine relevant cycling postures have been studied, and it was found that for road cycling, gripping the hoods with horizontal forearms can reduce the required cyclist power by 13.4%, and for draft-legal triathlon applications, the use of short bar extensions reduced the required power by up to 16.7%. It was also found that lowering the eyes and head increased drag in both drops and triathlon postures. Measurements of the velocity profiles of the wake of a cyclist in four different postures are presented, and it is shown that differences in drag coefficients between postures can be correlated with changes in the wake velocity defect and turbulence intensity distribution.
