Where science meets cycling – an interview with Lukas Löer from SCYENCE
From the beginning on Lukas has been a part of the VOTEC Endeavor Project. As a sports scientist he now wants to combine his job with his passion and has founded SCYENCE with partners. We talk to Lukas about the content of SCYENCE, his plans and, above all, the scientific findings and translations that he and his team will devote themselves to.
VOTEC Endeavor Project athlete Lukas at Unbound
We met up with Lukas to talk about the pitfalls of the race and, above all, the imponderables. About the different phases in a long-distance race and why the preparation and working with the material is so relevant. It was a very mixed experience for Lukas on a demanding track. The day before the race, the route was adjusted again due to severe flooding and the mud that was left behind provided unexpected challenges. But now let’s talk to Lukas Löer about the Unbound.
Stuttgart- Stelvio: In one go !
What happens if we never turn around to head home, but just continue riding? If our legs keep on going – instead of resting on the couch, we keep rolling towards the horizon? Could we ride non-stop from VOTEC headquarters to one of the most iconic peaks in cycling history? Instead of endlessly thinking about it, we decided to just do it. In early September, a colourful group of us set off from Stuttgart and headed towards the Alps. The destination was the Stelvio, which just three weeks ago had turned the Giro upside down. Tackling this climb probably ranks highly on the to-do list of all bike racing fans.
