This study compared hip flexion angles during sprint cycling with those during sub maximal cycling performed using a range of handlebar positions (changing height and reach). Eleven competitive cyclists were assessed in two sessions. The first session involved determining handlebar positions that resulted in a range of pre-determined hip flexion angle (70-110°) during sub maximal cycling. In the second session, cyclists performed 2 x 6-s sprints at the handlebar positions determined during the first session. Xsens motion tracking system was used to measure hip flexion angles during sprints completed with the handlebar positions determined during the first session. Differences between predetermined hip flexion angles and the angles measured during the sprint ranged from
