Phil Burt spent 12 years as head physio at British Cycling, and five with Team Sky.

 

He tells presenter Ian Parkinson how he’s planning to use that knowledge to help the rest of us, via his new company Phil Burt Innovation. We look at the healthy state of steel frame building with Saffron Frameworks’ Matthew Sowter, Caren Hartley of Hartley Cycles and Andrew Denham of the Bicycle Academy.
