Mid Sweden University and Dalarna University are engaging in research regarding the phenomenon of cardiovascular drift during cycling competitions. Cardiovascular drift is the physiological reaction where the heart rate increases over time relative to the workload, in this case power output in watts. To do this, researchers will gather information on the relationship between power output and heart rate.
The researchers are asking for road cyclists of all levels and abilities that use a power meter and heart rate monitor during competitions (road, criterium, time trial and stage races) and are willing to submit the power and heart rate data, as well as some additional information.
Interested participants can contact Fredrik Ericsson via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone (+46 707 797169).
