327 Matt Bottrill - Time Trialling for Triathletes - Special Edition

Oxygen Addict Triathlon Podcast

Matt Bottrill is probably the World’s leading expert on putting triathletes in aerodynamic positions on the bike, and helping them train in a way that makes them go fast on race day! A former 60x National time trial medalist, Matt now coaches and advises athletes like Brian Fogarty, Tim Don, Tim O’Donnell and Matt Hansen to name but a few. He also runs a very successful coaching and bike fitting service where he helps age group triathletes get faster and more aerodynamic on the bike. We talk about how you can go faster - using a power meter and heart rate monitor, training, body position drills, kit, tyres, wheels, clothing, and how to analyse power and speed data. He’s a wealth of information, and if the information in this episode doesn’t make you faster on the bike, nothing can!

287 Matt Bottrill - Bike Speed and Aerodynamics

Oxygen Addict Triathlon Podcast

This week we bring you a bike fit special, with Matt Bottrill - British uber time trial legend turned bike coach to triathlon superstars.Matt has worked wonders with the bike position and speed of triathletes like Lucy Charles, Will Clarke, Susie Cheetham, Matt Hanson, and Tim Don. He also positioned Lotto Soudal cyclist Victor Campenaerts for his successful attempt on the hour record.Ever wonder - ‘How on earth do people go so fast on the bike? Is it all down to fitness, or is there more to it?’ We talk about all the things that you can do to go faster - other than training. Clothing. Body position. Helmet choice. Head position. Hand position. Specific drills to help you hold that new bike position. As we’ll find out, all these things have a MASSIVE effect on how fast your power will let you go - much more so than most athletes realise. It'll take time to adjust to a new position- 6-8 weeks in Matt's experience. But once you get there, you're going faster simply because of your equipment choices and body position, rather than 'just' the training you're doing.You can find out more about Matt and his services at https://www.mattbottrillperformancecoaching.com/Show Sponsors:https://www.precisionhydration.com/ - Leaders in triathlete sweat testing and hydration, with multi-strength electrolytes that match how you sweat.
