Competitive Cycling : Riding Positions for Road Races in Competitive Cycling
For a road race most of the race, you are
pretty much going to riding up here what is called the hood, up on the top. Some people
when they hill climb, prefer to have their hands here right in the middle when they are
climbing hills. It gives you better positioning. You will notice in faster sense when you see
the group going down in a road race, a lot of riders will drop down in the drops. Basically
I think you can get more arrow dynamic, gain more speed and when you get out of the descent
you will see people back up on the hoods riding up here on the road races.
