Losing 2 kilograms of bodyweight is attainable for most of us out there, but how exactly would this help your performance out on the trails?
A reduction in body weight can make a difference in your performance. Gravity favours the lighter rider when climbing. For example, if you hold the same amount of watts (140 W) on a 5km climb with a 4% gradient and you weigh in at 80kg instead of 82kg, you can save over 30 seconds.
In case you think 30 seconds is not a significant difference, once you’ve experienced someone slowly pulling away on a climb, you’ll know that every second counts and that 30 of them is a quite a chunk.
