Abstract

Cycling the entire length of the UK from Land's End to John o'Groats is a popular endurance challenge. This article documents the support provided to Mark Warren, a 50-year-old male cyclist, from 9 months (November 2018-July 2019) prior to the solo challenge (24th July). The target our athlete had set himself was to complete the 1,000+ mile cycle in 11 days. Our team comprised two physiologists (Gavin Thomas and Dr Ben Duncan), a nutritionist (Dr Matthew Cook), three technicians (Dr Mark Corbett, Joe Bevins and Matt Davies) and two research students (Meg Price and Elliot Maslen). We also provide a unique documentation of the athlete’s (Mark) reflection of the scientific support implemented.
