. 9 Sanders et al 10 recently showed the usefulness of the anaerobic power reserve construct for predicting sustainable power performance across 4 professional road cyclists with largely diverse peak power profiles (range = 1036–1525 W). Therefore, the anaerobic speed reserve (ASR), defined as the

complete several races within a short period of time during their competitions (eg, stage races, heats), possibly leading to increased fatigue sensations due to the repetitive high-intensity efforts that are conducted before the finals take place. For example, road cyclists compete on 90 to 100 competition

—the mountains and the urban skateparks—are defined in gendered terms. Risk occupies a key location in the imaginary of many action sports. Road cyclists, for instance, tell stories of their crashes, tying risk to their identity ( Albert, 1999 ). And when risk is a central part of a subculture, members who avoid
