Scientifically Creating Fastest Triathletes in the World | Sebastian Weber
by Taren Gesell
SEBASTIAN WEBER has coached some of the world’s top professional cycling teams and athletes for the past decade. With degrees in Sport Science and Molecular Human Biology, he was recognized as a top mind in sport science at age 28 when he was named the youngest Head Sports Scientist ever for the T-Mobile professional cycling team at age 28. In the years since then, he founded the STAPS Human Performance Lab in Germany and has helped athletes win at the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta, multiple World Championships and Olympic medals. Most recently, his methods of applied analysis of energy metabolism have caught wider interest and he’s been working with athletes in other sports, including Ironman Kona bike course record holder, pro triathlete Cam Wurf.
