Professional cyclists have finished their holidays and getting ready to travel to Spain where they'll improve their preparation for the 2023 season.
They have already started their training at the base training and core strength work.

Italian thoughts on saddle inclination
Questions and Answers thanks to BICIdaSTRADA.it
Which saddle angle is the right one? Do we need to tilt the saddle down? What about tilting the saddle up? Do you experience numbness in the perineal region?
You can read a few reasonable responses at

After a great summer and long epic rides, this is the time to recover and preparing for next season.
Where to start improving performance? Let's have a look at our core strength and stability using the single leg bridge.
Follow the video below, get into activation mode and attempt to keep the position for 10 seconds. Try to keep your pelvis as stable as possible, don't make it drop or shift on one side and look for instabilities.
The single leg bridge is a simple and quick test to verify gluteal, abdominal and lower back muscle groups strength and asymmetries in bulk and motor/sensory control.

Muscle can contract in three different ways: isometric, concentric and eccentric. In the last few years several studies found out that eccentric type of exercises for hamstrings are strengthening the muscle and reduce risk of injury in the footballer population.

Bike fitting is much more than finding the optimal position on the bike. By analyzing the movement of the body, data from EMG and power meter, differences in muscle activation are often highlighted. A core strength exercise routine can help to improve muscle control and overall cycling technique.
Body movement analysis is a bike fitting phase to collect information that together with physical evaluation often explain asymmetries in movements, sensorimotor differences and imbalances in muscle mass. In this case a functional leg length difference affect the pelvis stability/movement.
