Bernardo Gonçalves is an expert in aerodynamics and aerodynamic testing and optimisation, the founder of AeroEdge, and a pro continental cyclist. He is the person who has earned the trust to work directly with Scientific Triathlon pro triathletes on their aerodynamics. In this episode we discuss all things aerodynamics, and how triathletes of many different levels can improve their bike splits through aerodynamic optimisation.         

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Quantifying and exemplifying the importance of aerodynamics

-Why body position is by far the most important thing to optimise

-Position changes that are often beneficial 

-Why more expensive bikes might not be any better than cheaper ones

-A case for shorter cranks

-Why track and road testing are the best ways of assessing aerodynamics for long distance triathletes (better than the wind tunnel)

-Common mistakes in aerodynamic testing

-Why W/CdA is much more important than W/kg

-How to interpret marketing claims made by the cycling industry

-Myths and misconceptions about aerodynamics and aero testing

We have two interviews in today's episode. First, Dr. Dustin Joubert discusses new research on the effect carbon fibre plated "super shoes" have at slower speeds and how it differs from at faster speeds. Then Dr. Amol Saxena shares a case series of how rapidly transitioning to running in super shoes may increase the risk of navicular bone stress injuries.    

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-The running economy benefits of super shoes at 10 and 12 km/h, and how it compares to the previously studies speeds in the 14-16 km/h range

-More non-responders to super shoes at slower speeds? 

-How the observed running economy improvements translate to performance gains at marathon times in the 3:30 to 4:15 range

-Navicular bone stress injuries: causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment

-A case series of how rapid transition to training and racing in super shoes may be linked with navicular bone stress injuries

-Advice for safely transitioning into running with super shoes
