British Cycling have a new video that shows you the right way to move forward in a bunch. It has been produced to support its Racesmart campaign to promote responsible racing.
This video, presented by former pro Matt Stephens, is designed to ensure you safely and successfully get in the right place at the right time so that you can get a good race result.
It tells you the most efficient way to get from the back of the bunch to a better position towards the front, and advises you on making the most of opportunities to move up by exploiting the errors and fatigue of other riders.
The video also goes into tactics to cope with winds and making the most of descents, and covers how to choose the right time to make your move and get to the front when it really matters.
Mat has worked for more bike magazines than anyone else in the known universe, dating back to a time when this was all just fields. He's been road.cc technical editor for four years, testing bikes, fettling the latest kit, and trying out the most up-to-the-minute clothing. We send him off around the world to get all the news from launches and shows too. When he's not cycling around Wiltshire, he's running around it, or possibly swimming (sadly, he's one of those 'triathletes'). Mat is a youthful 42-year-old Cambridge graduate, GSOH etc.
