If you want to learn how to reach peak cycling performance, listen carefully to Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter. Phinney, a two-time Tour de France stage winner, was named the winningest racer in U.S. history by VeloNews, and Connie Carpenter, an Olympic gold medalist, is no slouch either. Together they have compiled a comprehensive guide to cycling that will not disappoint. Chapters include specific instructions for everything from basic training to cycling nutrition to the nitty-gritty of racing tactics. The guide is written in the first person, and because it is authored by two people, this can sometimes lead to confusion. But when milking the gurus for knowledge, a little confusion will seem well worth it.From Library Journal:
This is not the book for those seeking to develop a cycling program in order to get or stay in shape. Rather, it is for serious cyclists training for competition. Phinney and Carpenter, both Olympic medalists, employ their experience and knowledge of cycling competitions. They offer advice on selecting the right bike for racing, training regimens, what to expect when competing in a race, and maximizing performance. The first third of this book is a bibliography of the authors' racing careers. The remainder provides information of a technical nature, more so than the general reader needs. Recommended only for collections serving serious cyclists.
