The menstrual cycle and performance/James Elvery of Race Ranger-an update

In this episode:

Much has been said about how female reproductive hormones can play a role in women's ability to train and race and most of what has been said has come from one woman. The reality though is the evidence paints a very different picture than what too many women have been sold as what to expect. I look at the latest in a growing body of evidence to question the dogma that women should expect to perform differently based on when in their cycle they train. Plus, a year after he first appeared on this podcast to talk about the Race Ranger, James Elvery is back to give an update after his first real world test in a race situation. How did it go and what comes next for the anti-drafting solution?
