Abstract

Cycling is a sports activity that requires strength, power and flexibility. The objective of
this study is to measure and compare the leg strength, leg power and the flexibility among
the on-road cyclist and off-road cyclist. 20 cyclist has involves in this study (N=10) from
on-road cyclist and (N=1O) from off-road cyclist. Subjects performed the lRM leg press
test to measure strength, vertex pole vertical jump to measure power and sit and reach to
measure flexibility. Data analysis was analysed using the independent t-test. The results
show there was no significance difference on strength, power and flexibility between on road
and off-road cyclist because of the p>0.05. However, the results show there is
slightly difference between on-road and off-road cyclist based on the indicators it is
because of the nature of the sports. As conclusion, to have a better performance of
cycling, athletes should be trained specifically according to the fundamentals of the
sports. The developments of fundamentals for on-road and off-road cycling events are
important in order to have a better cyclist in the future.
