15: Service Course | Cycling in cyberspace
In this episode of Service Course, Lizzy Banks and Tom Whalley take a deep dive into the world of online cycling, something that we've all become even more accustomed to over the last 12 months thanks to a global pandemic. Tom speaks to Zwift's lead game designer Wes Salmon, Hustle City creator Marcus Cheek, cyclist and CEO of Die Gute Fabrik Hannah Nicklin, Mike Rose from No More Robots, and Stuart Ruecroft. If you played Milk Race on your Spectrum or Commodore 64 in the 1980s then you'll have seen some of Stuart's work. In the episode Tom asks how platforms such as Zwift have been so successful in combining the language of cycling with that of video games. Tom also peaks into the future to see what new platforms are emerging, platforms such as SOL cycling and Hustle City, and looks at how they are going to utilise your smart turbo trainer to create new ways to enjoy online cycling. Plus Lizzy takes a look at a sub-5kg disc-brake bike build. Service Course by The Cycling Podcast is supported by Science in Sport.

Special Episode – Ketones and Bicarbonate with Dr. Chiel Poffe - Science of Getting Faster Podcast
Subscribe to the all-new Science of Getting Faster Podcast! - Exogenous ketones are lauded by many for their endurance performance enhancing properties, but their impact on blood acidity is detrimental to performance and can even counteract their otherwise positive effects. Dr. Chiel Poffe and his partners conducted a study to learn if Bicarbonate Unlocks the Ergogenic Action of Ketone Monoester Intake in Endurance Exercise, and what they learned was surprising.
