I bought myself a starter 'Felt' bike in July after deciding to set myself the challenge or ironman for my 40th... I have discovered that I need to work on my hill climbs.

I am a PhD student and ultra endurance enthusiast.

I am recruiting ultra endurance cyclists/triathletes (who are planning to complete an ultra race in 2014), to take part in a survey and food diary based study. In return you will receive a nutritional analysis report indicating potential nutritional inadequacies.
Take a look at my research website for more information ultranutrition

If you have already completed an ultra race this year and you have no further races planned then you can still get involved by completing the nutrition survey on it's own: Ultra endurance nutrition research

I hope to hear from you soon
