Concentrated know-how and 15 years of experience in working with top athletes: Phil Burt knows exactly how important the interaction of physiotherapy and bike fitting is. He does not only have a perfect command of this interaction, but also outlined it in his much-noticed book “Bike Fit”. He will also share his knowledge with the participants of 2018 ISCO Symposium at the beginning of November.
During his professional career, Phil has worked with cycling superstars like Bradley Wiggins, Christopher Froome or Victoria Pendleton: as head physiotherapist of British Cycling he contributed considerably to the success of the British cyclists at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and 2012 in London. His job: to detect the small, but decisive improvements in the athlete’s health, rehabilitation and performance that make the difference between victory and defeat. With this mission, he has also seen to it for years that the pro riders of team Sky set the tone at the big international races. In numbers: Phil has a share in more than 30 Olympic gold medals, over 100 WC medals and, so far, 5 Tour de France victories. With his expertise, he was a driving force behind loosening of the saddle regulations of the World Cycling Federation UCI.
