Video: How to move up in a bunch
Video shows you how to move forward safely and efficiently when racing
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.
