Descending is the art of going downhill and is an essential skill for pro cyclists. Races can be won or lost on downhills and speeds reached can often exceed 100kmph!

Let us know your descending tips👇

You can be the best in the world at going uphill but if you are nervous and slow going down the other side you could potentially lose more time than you gain. This is particularly emphasised on mountain stages where the descents are long and technical.
Pro cyclists can reach speeds in excess of 100 kilometres per hour or 60 miles per hour.

Peter Sagan is one of the best descenders in the modern Peloton but we actually don't get to see many of the best descenders on our television screens, and that is because they are sprinters, fearless riders who are not at the head of affairs at the end of climbs but who zoom down the other side trying to limit their losses.

If you'd like to contribute captions and video info in your language, here's the link 👍
