To compare the angles of both hemibodies and movements associated with sporting gestures in road
Fifteen right-handed male road cyclists, with a mean age of 27 ± 4.25 years, participated in the study. Subjects
who were younger than 18 years old or were previously diagnosed with posture impairment, motor disorders, and
cognitive or mental deficits were excluded. Measurement procedures were performed using biophotogrammetry and
kinemetry to analyze the angles and biomechanics of sporting gestures during the activities.
Based on the results of biophotogrammetry, the angles measured showed symmetry among the participants. The
kinematics analysis revealed that the trunk flexion did not show any significant differences between the angles when the
sporting gestures were performed. When the triple maximum flexion of the lower limbs and the maximum extension of
the lower limbs were analyzed, a statistical significance (p < 0.05) between the angles in both sitting and standing
positions was found. However, the results showed a direct association with the desired physiological movement, which
did not affect the function.
The results showed that the biomechanics of the angles between both hemibodies and the sporting gestures in
cyclists were not affected. This finding is directed in particular to the implementation and planning of training practices
that will raise the awareness among cyclists of their bodies and the appropriate adjustments of the bicycle components.
