Take your cycling up a gear with SSISA & Science to Sport

Science to Sport

The Sports Science Institute of SA (SSISA) in partnership with Science to Sport, offers excellent services to cyclists of all calibres. Together, they have organised a workshop, in conjunction with Futurelife, with a fantastic line up of expert speakers to answer your pressing questions.

Are you wanting to take your cycling performance to the next level but are unsure of exactly whose advice to follow? Do you have questions about your training, your nutrition and how best to prepare for an event and deliver your best on race day?

Head of the SSISA’s Sports Performance Centre, Dr Mike Posthumus, who coaches several national and international elites as well as competitive amateur cyclists, will discuss how to design a cycling training programme. World-renowned physiologist, coach and sports physician, Dr Jeroen Swart, will chat about race day and periodised nutrition. SILVERBACK OMX Pro team rider, Mariske Straus, who is no slouch on the bike and boasts a 2nd at the XCM World Cup in Malaysia and has won several ABSA Cape Epic stages– will chat about how to ensure you are ready for your big race. We will then host a Q and A with these experts, who are all coaches at Science to Sport.

The workshop is scheduled for Monday 19 February 2018 with registration kicking off at 17h45 at the SSISA’s conference centre, in Newlands, Cape Town. Entry fee is just R100 per delegate and this includes light snacks. A cash bar will be available before the workshop.
