My profession (Professional Road Racing) requires that I ride my bike nearly every day of the year except for three weeks in October which I call my “Off Season.” Because my training/racing schedule leaves no time to rest-up or complete a physiotherapy routine if, for example, I pull a muscle, long-standing muscular and range-of-motion imbalances must be dealt with proactively. There is a big assumption that once you ‘turn pro’ daily massage is the norm. However this is often not the case, which means most of us have to take daily recovery into our own hands.—Ben Chaddock
