Review: Specialized S-Works Ares Road Shoes Are Great… Just Not For The Obvious Reasons
if you had to guess what Specialized intended when promoting a shoe that makes you 1% faster in a sprint while also being comfortable for the whole ride, what would you guess? Would you think that you could ratchet them down tight, but they’d still be comfy? Makes sense, right? Yeah, that’s what I thought, […] The post Review: Specialized S-Works Ares road shoes are great… just not for the obvious reasons appeared first on Bikerumor .

Will Strickson 21 Jan 2021 President's stationary bike poses security risk due to its camera, microphone and connectivity expert warns Newly-inaugurated US President Joe Biden may not be allowed to take his Peloton bike with him to the White House, an expert has warned. The bike, bought by the President and his wife, Dr Jill Biden, to keep fit during the Covid-19 pandemic , could pose a potential cyber security risk due to its microphone, camera and internet connectivity. Max Kilger, associate professor in practice and director of the Data Analytics Program at the University of Texas told Popular Mechanics : 'You're connected to the internet, even though there are firewalls and intrusion detection software... Those things can be gotten around if you're really good and skilled.' Both the microphone and camera fitted to a Peloton bike are controlled by the operating system on your connected device and the bike ...

Joe Robinson 20 Jan 2021 Lotto-Soudal have given their team leaders special bikes again, and they're beautiful Lotto-Soudal have given their team leaders special bikes again, and they're beautiful Words : Joe Robinson Photography : FacePeeters If the world was your oyster and you could sign for any men's WorldTour cycling team, who would you pick? Trek-Segafredo could be a sound choice as it means you will get to wear the best looking kit in the peloton . Ineos Grenadiers could be a good call as you are guaranteeing yourself a decent wage.

Cycling Strength Circuits: Get Strong For The Saddle
Ben Ince 19 Jan 2021 Do these circuits at home or the gym to be faster and more injury-proof on the bike Photography: Danny Bird Nothing beats time in the saddle for improving your cycling, but with the NHS now advising two strength sessions a week for general fitness, and recent research highlighting the benefits for cyclists (see issue 108), there has never been a better time to embrace off-the-bike training. Strength training is a crucial part of every pro’s arsenal, but this hasn’t always been the case. Despite their status as elite endurance athletes, previous generations had a higher propensity for osteoporosis later in life, having never done the load-bearing work required to increase their bone density. ‘People think strength training is all about building muscle to ride faster, but it’s also crucial for correcting imbalances and preventing injury,’ says coach Richard Lord from Espresso Cycle Coaching . ‘A ...

Joe Robinson 19 Jan 2021 Component brand Shimano takes on duty of Tour de France neutral service The iconic yellow Mavic neutral service car will be absent from the Tour de France for the first time since 1977. It comes as Japanese component giant Shimano cut a deal with Tour organiser ASO to take on the noble duty. The agreement will also see Shimano continue its neutral service duties at the Vuelta a Espana, Paris-Roubaix , Liege-Bastogne-Liege, Fleche Wallonne, Paris-Tours and amateur events, L'Etape du Tour and Roc d'Azur. Shimano will start its neutral service offerings for 2021 at Paris-Nice in March. With Shimano stepping up to the role of neutral service at this summer's Tour, it appears it is curtains for Mavic and its iconic yellow neutral service car. First used at the 1973 Paris-Nice, the Mavic neutral service car made its Tour debut in 1977, offering spare wheels ...

Mads Pedersen: 'Stuyven And I Are A Pair Of Kings For The Classics'
Will Strickson 20 Jan 2021 The Trek-Segafredo rider believes partnership with teammate Jasper Stuyven gives them the edge in the Classics When asked in a pre-season press conference whether he thinks he should be Trek-Segafredo 's sole leader for the Classics , Mads Pedersen smiled and said: 'I think it makes us and the team stronger to have two cards to play, this is a pair of kings. It's not a bad hand to have in a poker game.' He is of course referring to Belgian teammate Jasper Stuyven, the other half of Trek's two-headed Classics dragon.
