$10.2million was the cost of ACC cycling related soft tissue injury claims…​

That’s a large sum from just 11 thousand soft tissue injuries across NZ. 13.8 % of all claims were generated from Canterbury alone. You should be actively planning out or already engaged into your training programmes, ensuring you are in peak condition for Le Race, so ask yourself;
  • Does your training programme have a solid mobility component to it, ensuring you are not part of the injury statistics?
  • Is your mobility component more than self -conducted stretching?
  • Do you want to know more about how to programme mobility into your training schedule?
Mobility is what Restore does best, call us on 03 379 9929 for a chat on how you can improve your on-bike performance from your mobility.
