If you just want the bullet points to become a faster cyclist from proven scientific studies without any other noise or background info, this page is for you. We distill the studies so you don’t have to know “research language.” This page is constantly updated with links to the longer study distillation. But if it’s here, it is based on a controlled scientific study.
A strikethrough means new information has come which disproves or calls the study into question. For now, they are ordered by the date we discovered them with the newest at the top. We’ll probably regroup by category later.
