Cycling kinematics: implications for bike fitting

On 25 June 2024 a masterclass will be given by Borut Fonda
Location: Learning Center Morgagni Florence

Time 09.00-17.00

Program

This 1-day masterclass will dive deep into the cycling kinematics from both, the technological and practical point of view. A range of experts will present and provide hand-on training using the latest technology available for bike fitters. Attendees will learn how to address the challenges when using a motion capturing system and how to use the parameters for bike fitters. Masterclass is supported by STT System who will provide all the latest technology for kinematic analysis in cycling and will be led by a renowned bike fitter Dr. Borut Fonda who regularly works with elite World Tour cyclists including Grand Tour Champions.

Topics:
– Motion Capture: an overview
– Technological requirements for valid assessment
– How to prepare the space and limit external noise
– Objective measurements: what numbers tell us in practice
– Bike fitting using motion capturing system
– Practical demonstrations and hands-on practice

About the instructor

Dr. Borut Fonda is a renowned bike fitter, biomechanics consultant and the head of the absoluteBLACK science lab. He is a former cross-country mountain biker with now over 10 years in cycling biomechanics optimisation business. He completed his undergrad degree in physical conditioning at the University of Ljubljana and masters study of exercise physiology at the University of Primorska. He has a doctoral degree from the University of Birmingham in the UK with a research focus in biomechanics, motor control and ergonomics during cycling.  He was the program director of S2P Cycling Science and a founder of a brand Forped – innovative force pedals that are still used only by the best cycling institutions around the globe. He designed the multiple times awarded patent – an adjustable seat post. Borut is also strongly present in the scientific community with many scientific and professional publications to his name on topics including motor control, biomechanics, recovery and ergonomics. He is a frequent invited speaker at the biggest sport science conferences and symposiums.  He worked or still works with several WT riders including Tadej Pogačar on his quest to winning 2 Grand Tours and several other cycling monuments.
