oa South African Journal of Sports Medicine - Improved time-trial performance after tapering in well-trained cyclists
Objective. The purpose of this study was to determine whether cycling performance improved during a 14-day taper, the time course of any improvement, and the possible physiological reasons for any change in performance. Design. Twenty trained male cyclists (> 250 km/wk) were randomly assigned either to a control group that continued training as usual, or to a reduced-training (tapering) group.
