Abstract

The sport of cycling includes a wide variety of racing situations and disciplines. Track races are held both indoors and out in velodromes on an oval track with banked corners; road races are held on flat, hilly, and mountainous courses on urban and rural paved streets; mountain bike and cyclocross races are held on dirt tracks that may include obstacles and hills. Disciplines include individual and team races, sprint and endurance distances, as well as single-day and multi-stage events. In this presentation, we will discuss the assumptions and features of the proposed model and present preliminary simulation attempts to model the individual time trial. A revised model will be presented and the simulation results compared to the outcomes of the individual time trial at the 2017 Tour de France.
