The drive for more data in pursuit of sporting excellence marches on. In cycling terms, riders have been accessing power numbers and monitoring heart rates for a long time. So fresh ground has been sought; this week we highlight a "drag force measurement system' that allows riders to train to aero without a wind tunnel and a body temperature sensor that's all the rage in the WorldTour.

On the topic of aerodynamic optimizations, we have been doing our very own field testing too, taking to the Silverstone Sport Engineering Hub wind tunnel to see just how much faster super narrow handlebars really are.
