In our four-part series ‘How to climb like a boss’ we chat to Sports Physician and Bicycling’s Scientific Editor Dr Jeroen Swart for mental and physical tips to get to the top of the hill ahead of your mates, or at least to relish the climb rather than fear it.


In the first in the series, we look at how climbing is most often all in the mind!

Lose weight, not power! In Part 2 of our climbing series we look at the all important power-to-weight ratio and the science behind it.
