Are Elite Athletes At Higher Risk Of Heart Problems & Premature Death?
Have a read of this chaps: Asseem Malhotra is a more of a clickbait farmer for the Express than a cardiologist these days.

Are Elite Athletes At Higher Risk Of Heart Problems & Premature Death?
Bravo Seb. You must have put a lot of work into this and it shows. Part of my work involves cardiac screening and explaining the risks of exercise following the results. I'm going to steal away this article into my resource library and may end up sending it to clients.

Overall Standings After the 2021 Nove Mesto XC World Cup
In the British system, once you race in the elites as an U23 you can't go back, so it's a big commitment. It's also often better for rider development to be a big fish in a small pond for a bit rather than going straight into the big show.

I was hoping they'd have some forks off rental bikes or something similarly buggered to service. Brand new is cheating!

Video: Interval Training with Nino Schurter - 'Fitter, Faster, Stronger' Episode 2
For riders without power meters, for a high intensity VO2 max session, you can essentially do your maximum pace for the 5 minutes, but reign it in slightly for the first couple - you should be aiming not to have a massive power drop over the set of intervals. A more attainable session, and easier to work into a training programme, would be intervals at 90-95% of VO2 max intensity. Ideally you'll be accumulating 40 minutes at this intensity over a session, but this will probably be something you'll need to work up to. For riders without a power meter, imagine doing your best effort over 12 minutes, and do this for the 5-8 minute intervals. You shouldn't be totally empty at the end of each effort. i.e. if someone asked you to do a minute longer at that intensity, you should be able to at a push. By working at slightly less than VO2 max, you're getting almost all of the cardiopulmonary benefits (peak diastolic filling and tidal volume occur around this zone for instance - above this it's just a HR and breathing rate increase), but causing less stress than working at VO2 max, hence allowing you to accumulate more time at the intensity, as well as complete the session while holding some residual fatigue. Closer to the season it is definitely worth doing some efforts at max intensity though, more so to get a feel for them than anything else.

He cited health issues on his instagram post, possibly the migraines that he's been having the past couple of years. Looks like he was in the mix for the first lap at least.
