Drafting

All about Drafting

Even if you’re a recreational road rider and not a hardcore racer….riding in a pace line and drafting behind another rider is something you should know a little something about.  Although this podcast focuses on a lot of the basics of drafting, we also get into some of the more technical aspects that are sure to be informative for the racers as well.

We have talked about group riding etiquette and other aspects of the pace line in the past, but this podcast focuses on the drafting aspects involved.  Tune into this edition of the Cycling 360 podcast to learn more about:

  • The definition of drafting
  • What are the advantages of drafting and how to use it to your advantage
  • How to learn to draft
  • Simple steps to become comfortable at drafting
  • Why you should never look down at the wheel in front of you
  • Where your eyes should be focused while drafting
  • Things you should never do while drafting
  • Drafting tips for elite riders
  • Scrub speed
  • Braking while in the pace line
This show is packed with great information and we hope you’ll join us for another edition of the Cycling 360 podcast.

    • Sean, Sorry to sound Like I am harping but we have apologized for sound issues in the past. They are for the most part out of our control as we use Skype to record and do not live in the same time zones. We would love to have a PRO set up but PRO set ups are big bucks. While we hope to get there one day I hope you can forgive the occasional sound issues. – Coach Rob
