Besides working as a mechanic for the Norco Factory team, Dr Lewis Kirkwood is also a leading MTB researcher at Edinburgh Napier University focused on understanding vibrations during riding. In Episode 71 of the Performance Advantage Podcast, we discuss potential dangers due to vibration exposure in MTB, how the bike-rider system can function optimally, and how data is used at the World Cup Downhill races (spoiler: it could be used better!).

The Performance Advantage Podcast is committed to bringing sports science to the people. In each episode, leading experts offer their perspectives on practical applications to sports science to help you understand and use the information for yourself.
