Dan Backhausen   Output Cycling Denmark

At Output Cycling the motto is always "train smart, train hard - and rest a lot" ;-) The main focus is optimizing benefits for effort in all aspects of the athletes plan. Athletes are assigned a personal coach who, in addition to the actual training, factors in the athlete’s work and personal life for long-term success in reaching the defined goals. Subscriptions include video-conferences, daily feedback and plan adjustments and is just some of the tools used timing the ahtletes performance.


I have been riding bikes since before I could walk. After years of riding "for the fun of it", I took up racing without really knowing what worked for me training wise, and I became increasingly interested in the mechanics and physiology behind cycling. In the beginning,as a self-study, I "consumed" everything on training and racing. Of course a lot of my curriculum was directly or indirectly associated with TrainingPeaks or the people behind this. After a few years, I realized that this was more than a hobby.

With the class-leading analysis program WKO3 (now operating WKO5) came a dawning understanding of "reading and interpreting data" from the increasing number of sources (HR, Cad., Power, Speed etc.) almost all cyclists produces every time they swing a leg over the top tube. As a teacher and mathematician I'm very much a data driven Coach.

I´ve a degree of "Diploma Coach" from the Danish Cycling Union and it´s given me an updated and comprehensive knowledge of the physiological aspects of training as a cyclist regardless of level. A knowledge that I´m now able to translate into "best practice" for each rider's specific needs.
