About the talks:

A young woman on a yoga mat doing core stability workWinterproofing Your Body will give you the information you need to get be ahead next season, advising on key strength, conditioning and top injury prevention theory and practice, from experts and cyclists Nichola Roberts and Jo McRae . They will cover why pain can occur when cycling and how to prevent it, what exercises you should do and why, taking a ‘pre-hab’ approach; stopping injuries before they happen. The talks will also cover the benefits of using the swiss ball to bridge the gap between rehab/pre-hab and strength for cyclists.
