This is a unique opportunity for confident and curious fitters and coaches to explore their bike fitting in The Flanders’ Bike Valley wind tunnel – unique, independent, low speed wind tunnel designed specifically for cyclists and the cycling industry, where aerodynamic drag and turbulence can be measured for manufacturers, product developers, and athletes.
Torke Cycling is delighted to join forces with Innovative Cycling to offer these courses to our fitters:
September 11-12 // Torke Cycling Body Positioning in the Wind Tunnel
September 13-14 // Aero Consultant Course
On the Aero Consultant course you will learn how to work in a wind tunnel and what can be expected when you take your clients to a wind tunnel. Participants can book the wind tunnel for their own clients after the course. The Torke Cycling Body Positioning course will show you Next Level bike fitting positioning and its real effects.
Topics to be covered include:
- Shape of extensions
- Height of the base bar
- Height of the extensions
- Frame size – more spacers or more frame? What is more aerodynamic?
- Shorter cranks – does this really bring an advantage?
- And more….
There is also an opportunity to enjoy some closed-course riding in the evening and visit the Bioracer and Ridley factories on September 15.
The course will be taught in English with biomechanical aspects delivered by Tony Corke and aerodynamic aspects by a specialist wind tunnel engineer from Bike Valley Flanders.
Cost is 1200Euro for 2 days – this includes a minimum of 4 hours in the wind tunnel.
Bike Valley Flanders is around 1 hour from Eindhoven airport and 1 hour from Brussels Airport and railway station for delegates travelling from London.
