NEWS: Last chance to check your fitness by assistinging an MSc student

There is a final opportunity for volunteers to take part in a study that Hull coach Andy Schofield is conducting into the physiological and performance characteristics of cycle speedway riders, as part of his postgraduate MSc in strength & conditioning at York St John University.

Participants must be at least 18 years old, of general good health and be competing regularly at regional level or above.

The testing will be over 2 days (about 3 hours/day) with one week separating each visit. Both sessions will take place on a Wattbike Pro indoor bike trainer and will require the participants to work at maximal intensity, to the point of exhaustion.

Participants will need to be available during the week (Monday-Friday) for about 3 hours between 09:00 and 18:00, and again one week later, and be able to travel to York St John University.

It is likely that each session will comprise 2 or 3 riders and exact timings can be decided at your convenience. The sessions will take place during July.

Volunteers will receive a personalised report of their test results which will include maximal aerobic capacity, maximal and mean power output and anaerobic capacity with comparisons to normative data.

Please contact Andy for a participant information sheet or further details at or 07948539098.
