Biomechanics of cycling level 2

In this second level of the Applied Biomechanics in Cycling course, we will delve deeper into the complete process of biomechanical study, how to put it into practice, the different analysis systems available today, and how to integrate all of this during the biomechanical study.

We will delve deeply into the assessment of the cyclist off the bike, gaining knowledge about the different tests that are currently performed for a comprehensive functional evaluation.

This course aims to provide students with all the tools to conduct a precise and rigorous biomechanical study applied to cycling.
