By Andrew Starykowicz
Known as the fastest cyclist in Ironman, Andrew Starykowicz knows abit about going fast! In this fourth Orca Flash tip Andrew lets us in on some pedaling technique secrets that he feels are often overlooked but when applied can greatly improve your pedaling technique and so your speed! In this video he identifies the key steps of an efficient pedal motion:
1. Pushing down
2. Sweeping backward
3. Driving the knee in the upswing and finally kicking forward
4. And then repeating it all again!
Important to remember when you’re practising this pedaling technique is that there should be no recovery time - every part of the pedal motion should be driving you forward.
