Abstract

Participation in ultra-endurance cycling events, such as the Transcontinental Race, is increasing. These extremely demanding races provide a unique opportunity for field observation of the limits of human endurance physiology and, importantly, when these limits might be exceeded and cross over into pathology. The heart is of special interest in this field, and previous data suggest that ‘reverse drift’ of heart rate occurs as a product of time and load in races of 24–48 h, whereas transient structural abnormalities have been observed upon completion of running ultramarathons. Here, we report a unique case of a male cyclist racing in the Transcontinental Race over an extended period of 14 days characterized by extreme workloads and a low quantity and quality of sleep. The heart rate response was dynamic over the course of the race and defined by a U-shaped quadratic relationship. A larger scale study is required to determine the relevance of this information to the ultra-endurance cycling community.
