Nuno Prazeres is a competitive Portuguese age-group triathlete and That Triathlon Show listener with great attention to detail.
He has really managed to get the most out of his bike power by optimizing his aerodynamics and using other hacks to get free speed on the bike.
An aero helmet is one of the most cost effective ways to get a significant aerodynamic improvement.
“We’ve already tested the benefits of wearing a skinsuit instead of a normal jersey and bibshorts and the results speak for themselves. On a 25-mile time trial ridden at 25mph, the skinsuit saved around five watts on both a normal road bike and a TT bike.
With the right fabric technologies and seam positions, it is possible to save between 10-15 watts even in top-end suits, which is significant in the world of TT racing.”
Don't put equal pressure in your front and rear tires out of laziness. Check your weight distribution over the wheels, and distribute pressure the same way.
"The Specialized aerodynamicists in charge of the wind tunnel, Mark Cote and Chris Yu, were so surprised that they tested five more cyclists before they would let Thomas publicly reveal the findings. The results were consistent: All of them saved between 50 and 82 seconds over 40 kilometres."
