I believe that the best way to analyze cycling sprints is to watch them from above (helicopter footage), I added the highlighter to show the position of the winner in each sprint.

How to become a better climber | Operation Hill Climb | Cycling Weekly

Hill climbs are a very British tradition, with no such culture existing in other major cycling nations. | Subscribe to Cycling Weekly here:

Strava records of Ditchling ride:

If you tried to explain the logic behind driving four hours to ride a one-minute time trial up Monsal Head to an Italian they would surely think you a little special. I decided to throw myself into this years hill-climbing season - I wanted to immerse myself in this cycling sub culture and find out what the appeal is. For many people, the idea of turning yourself inside out with a lung busting effort, up a brutally steep climb in typical autumnal British weather at 9am on a Sunday is far removed from what constitutes 'fun.' I also wanted to explore it takes to succeed in these short but intense events. If I stopped eating cake, got a mega light bike and trained like a pro, could I go from zero to hero? Probably not, but I thought I would give it a go anyway!
