Speaking after the event, Joss noted:
“To be a world record holder is surreal. Many weeks, months and years of hard work and preparation have enabled me to achieve this performance, and it is still difficult to comprehend.
I was so happy with my ride and knowing that my muscular capabilities, inferred from the EMG data during the training session, would hold out at the required power output for the duration of the hour really helped. That knowledge was a huge benefit in maintaining the belief and holding my pace throughout the record attempt.
I never considered using EMG as a training intervention before, but now I can really appreciate the value of the data we can receive through the Delsys sensors.”
