Road cycling began as an organised Sport in 1868. The first World Championships were held in 1893 and it has been a part of the Olympics in the whole of the modern era. Road Cycling has 2 main types of competition – the Road Race and the Time Trial.

In a Road Race, the riders start together in a bunch. The courses are of varying distances (approx. 260 km for Elite Men and 140km for Elite Women in the UCI World Championships).

Road Races have several different formats. They can be held on a circuit in which riders race over numerous laps like in the UCI Road World Championships; over one-day from one point to another like the Paris to Roubaix Race; or in Stage races in which riders race on consecutive days like the Tour de France.

In the Individual Time Trial the riders set off 1-2 minutes apart, with the reigning Champion leaving last. Without the motivation of other riders around them and the slipstream advantage of bunch riding, the time trial competitor must rely on huge mental strength to keep up the pace and cover the course in the fastest time possible. At the UCI World Championships and Olympic Games, the individual time trial is raced over 40-50 km for Elite Men and 20-30 km for Elite Women.

In a Team Time Trial the principle is the same as for the individual, but teams of between 2 and 10 riders who remain together along the course race this event. The team time trial is on the programme at the UCI Road World Championships as of 2012 (6 riders per team) and is open to UCI ProTeams, UCI Professional Continental Teams, UCI Continental Teams and UCI Women’s Teams.

How To Sprint Faster On A Road Bike

At some point in every cyclist's life, they will sprint. Maybe that’s because they’re being chased by a stray dog, they want to beat their mates to the cafe or they want to win a race. In this video, Chris and Si run you through three key aspects of training this skill.

Step one: Preparation. Now we have the perfect road we want to make sure we are both mentally and physically prepared for the efforts, you’ll want to adjust your shoes as tight as is bearable, and find a good strong grip in the bottom hooks of your bars.

Step two: sprinting technique. We’re going to target the fast high revving sprints of around 15 seconds, this is slightly longer than the bodies energy system wants to maintain a sprint, but not long enough to turn into an anaerobic effort.

Step three: fine tuning. To take these efforts to the next level, you can pay attention to a few extra details within the session. You can pick an imaginary finish line or sprint between two distinct markers on the road. By doing this you’ll start to learn how far you can sprint before fading, and when you should really start to sprint maximally in a competitive environment.

2016 Road Bicycle Racing - Farmersville Road Race 2/3 & 35+ Full(Trainer/Rollers)

Race Name: Farmersville Road Race 2/3 & 35+
Location: Farmersville, PA

84km road race, mostly flat.

FAQ
Q: What kind of bike do you have?
A: 2014 Diamondback Podium Equipe with a Shimano Ultegra 6800 groupset.

Q: What camera/software do you use to make these videos?
A: Gopro 2 camera, Garmin 500 to collect data, and software called Dashware to put it together.

Q: Any advice for new cyclists to get into racing?
A: To start racing, begin by just riding on your own. Start with the basics. Get used to controlling your bike. You may need practice using drop handlebars on a road bike, switching gears, braking, proper fit on the bike, descending, cornering, climbing (learn not to fear hills and mountains), sprinting, practicing intervals, base training, putting on more miles or kilometers than you’re used to each week, motivating yourself, eating healthy, staying hydrated every day, losing weight, and basic bike maintenance. Before you win your local criterium or win the State Championship, you’ll have to study up on and practice these things. Ignoring these things may result in you being in a top 10 worst crashes video on Youtube.

Even if you’re a fast rider already, bicycle racing is not always won by the strongest. Once you have the basics down, you need to join up with some local group rides. Learn the etiquette of riding in a group. Learn how to ride in an echelon. Learn how to avoid overlapping your front wheel. Learn how to draft. Get comfortable riding in close proximity to other riders, maybe even the accidental bump every once and awhile. Learn how to hold your line going through a corner in a pack. Look into joining a team that supports new riders. Ask for advice. Take constructive criticism from riders you trust.

When you sign up for your first race, don’t panic. It’s no big deal. No one cares if you get dropped or lap the field. Cat 5 is for learning. Practice riding smooth and drafting other riders. Look out for riders who are unpredictable or unsteady and either get in front of them or far away.

Which do you think is harder? Let us know in the comments below 👇

Si and Matt challenge one another to see which is fastest, a road bike or a mountain bike in a route from A-B.

The rides were taken part in the beautiful Alta Badia region of Italy.

Simon took to the dirt on his mountain bike whereas, thankfully, Matt stayed on the asphalt on his road bike.

The question is, who will be fastest, Road Or MTB ?
Who will have the highest average power...
