Comparison of Biomechanical Characteristics for the Skill Level in Cycle Pedaling Lee, Geun-Hyuk; Kim, Jai-Jeong; Kang, Sung-Sun; Hong, Ah-Reum; So, Jae-Moo;
Objective: This study aimed to compare biomechanical data between elite and beginner cyclists during cycle pedaling by performing a comparative analysis and to provide quantitative data for both pedaling performance enhancement and injury prevention. Methods: The subjects of this study included 5 elite cyclists (age: , body mass: , height: ) and 5 amateur cyclists (age: , mass: , height: ). The subjects pedaled on a stationary bicycle mounted on rollers of the same gear (front: 50 T and rear: 17 T
