Performance in enduro mountain biking: the influence of training status, recovery and vibration

  This PhD project is to investigate the physiological demands of elite enduro mountain bike racing. Previous work has detailed the attributes of the successful enduro mountain bike athlete and quantified field performance using GPS accelerometer devices. Current research is currently focusing on quantifying the physiological load and subsequent response to a year of training and competition. Additionally, the athletes’ immune response to an exercise test will be monitored for change throughout the research project. Therefore, this research aims to detail the key drivers of the immune response to enduro mountain bike training and competition and the subsequent effect on recovery and adaptation.
