The Physio-led bike fit and nutritional advice will be carried out by myself, John Phelan.  I have completed Physio-led bike fit training courses under Paul Visentini, a specialist sports physiotherapist in bike performance in 2015, and more recently a cycling rehabilitation course under Robert Brown & Dan Guillemette (lead Physio at Team Sky).  I am just back from attending a course in Italy at the Australian Institute for Sport.  It was run by Paul Visentini and Borut Fonda.  The link to the course is here for anyone interested.  Borut is one of the leading researchers into bike fitting and he is currently working with a Spanish company called Forped who, along with only one other company, have managed to create portable and wireless force pedals.  I got to try these at the course and they will most likely play a big role in the future of bike fitting, particularly in examining pedal stability at the cleat-pedal interface.  I have uploaded a video of this on the facebook page and will transfer it to the video section on this website in the next week.
