RealDeal Nation

It may be the end of the season but the racing has been continuing in full force with the RealDeal/Gears p/b WASPcam squad. This month we have had Crank the Shield, Provincial Duathlon Championships, Provincial Triathlon Championships, World Triathlon Championships, Lachine, and the Blue Mountain Centurion!

This month's MVPs:

Luke Hlavenka
Ontario's biggest mountain bike stage race Crank the Shield was held in Haliburton again this year with the MVP award going to Luke Hlavenka for his 2nd place in the 20-29 behind world cup rider Marc-Antoine Nadon! Luke also pulled off a gold medal at Dufferin Forest's Sausage Suit MTB ITT!

    Pain Cave Testing!

    RealDeal friend Saro Farra is conducting another research study on cyclists and is looking for participants!

    Exercising in an environment where the oxygen supply is limited has been shown to decrease exercise performance, but the causes of this impairment continue to be debated. Traditionally it was believed that low levels of inspired oxygen directly impaired the muscle’s ability to contract. Recently however, the central nervous system (brain) has been shown to influence the intensity at which one chooses to exercise when inspired oxygen levels are low. Therefore the purpose of this study is to clarify the role of the nervous system in the fatigue process when oxygen availability is limited.

    If you are interested in participating in this study please email saro.farra@mail.utoronto.ca!
