Modelling of cycling power data and its application for anti-doping

Journal Title: Journal of Science and Cycling - Year 2016, Vol 5, Issue 2


Since the introduction of the Athlete Biological Passport (ABP), research studies have suggested that there is risk of false-positive results due to a variety of factors that act to compromise its sensitivity to detect unusual variations in haematological parameters. Thus, the possibility of extending the ABP by proposing additional confounding variables, such as athlete performance data, is attractive.
