Time Trial

coaching, cycling, victoria, masters, olympics, houshang amiri

The individual time trial (ITT) is the one event that no cyclist can hide from. It draws on performance factors from multiple disciplines including the endurance and aerobic power of road cycling and the speed endurance and aerodynamic positioning valued in track riding. And of course, all cyclists have to spend the time just getting used to the position.

An attribute important in all disciplines but even more critical to time trialing is efficiency and riding economy. Developing and maintaining a correct pedaling technique is essential for a successful time trialist.




A Time Trial Specialist We’ve Worked with...


Svein Tuft

Silver Medalist, World Time Trial Championships
To develop his huge aerobic base and speed endurance for time trialing, Svein puts in enormous hours on his time trial bike, which includes much of his interval work. Leading up to the 2008 Olympics and World Championships, Svein put more monthly time on his TT bike than most cyclists put on all their bikes combined. The end result was that he’s as comfortable on his time trial bike as he is on his road bike.
