Cycling is a complex interaction between the body and the bike, and so both the body and the bike need to be included in a clinical reasoning process aimed at injury management and prevention, as well as improved performance.
Knowledge of bike set-up, as well as movement analysis, are essential, and the Science of Cycling will present a clinical and business framework for the bike set-up practitioner, as well as a current summary of literature in the area, and an elite level perspective of management of the cyclist.

Rob Brown is the physiotherapy director for Orica-Greenedge cycling, and is at the coalface of Australian High-Performance Cycling. He lives in Girona, Spain, and travels extensively with the team, guiding all aspects of their musculoskeletal health. He has a special interest in injury monitoring at the elite level, as well as injury prevention and recovery in cycling.

Emma Colson is one of Australia’s best qualified and most experienced bike set-up practitioners, with a specialised practice in this discipline. She has been involved in high performance cycling as a physiotherapist and a competitor, and has written many articles in the area of Cycling Science.

Paul Visentini is a recreational cyclist and highly involved in teaching and management in the area of ‘Load Mastery’. He runs the ‘Science of Cycling Giro D’Italia Tour’ each May, and has a special interest in muscle activation and load sharing in the closed kinetic chain, especially in cycling.

Steve Whytcross is an Associate of the Australian College of Physiotherapy and also teaches ‘Load Mastery’ around Australia. He has presented extensively regarding the use of technology in physiotherapy, and has a special interest in bike set-up and the integration of technology in assessment, rehabilitation and feedback.
