Description:
A fascinating insight into the science of the modern Tour de France peloton. A winning performance at the world's greatest bike race starts in the laboratory - and we're not talking doping. James Witts takes us into the world of marginal gains to find out how today's elite cyclists gain the advantage - physically, mentally and mechanically.

Take an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to create a world-class cyclist.

James Witts invites you into the world of marginal gains to discover the innovative training techniques, nutrition strategies and cutting-edge gear that are giving today's elite cyclists the competitive advantage.

Find out why Formula One telemetry is key to more bike speed; how power meters dictate training sessions and race strategy; how mannequins, computational fluid dynamics and wind-tunnels are elevating aerodynamics to the next level; why fats and training on water alone are popular in the peloton; and why the future of cycling will involve transcranial brain stimulation and wearable technology.
