My friend and top tier cycling phisologist, Dr. Inigo San Millan sent me an "organic" cycling video I thought to post here.
Outside of Inigo's job as Director of Human Performance Testing at the University of Colorado, he also directs physiology for UnitedHealthCare Pro Cycling Team. In this video Inigo is doing periodic lactate testing of Pro Rider Lachlan Morton during his training ride. Now while I've had this testing (earlobe blood pricking) in a lab on a trainer, I can imagine it is a bit more difficult on a roadway in 20 F cold and wet conditions.
What I thought was cool about this video was it was done by Lachlan's proud father David...simple and real production. As I've talked with other pros, this mundane type of training is typical...pretty much what we all do (except for the fact in my case I avoid such cold and wet days as cycling is not my day job : )
