Cardiac Risk for Endurance Athletes

Cardiac Risk for Endurance Athletes

11 Jul 17

Andrew Rice of Verulam CC has passed on an invitation for a talk that may be of interest to Wheelers.

The speaker, Dr Mark Mason, is a Cardiologist based at Harefield Hospital and director of the Heart Division.  He is also a keen cyclist having completed a number of single and multi-day events in both the UK and Europe. This session is in response to a number of articles published recently in the cycling press about cardiac risks associated with cycling which may have given cause for concern, particularly for the ‘older’ cyclist (i.e. the over 40s).
An information session discussing the risks and rewards of endurance sport, from cycling to triathalons, led by two consultant cardiologists from Harefield Hospital who specialise in the area.


Monday 24th July, 2017, 6:30 – 8:30pm


Dr Mark Mason, consultant cardiologist at Harefield Hospital, specialising in coronary artery disease, valve disease, heart failure, and implanting pacemakers.

Dr Antonis Pantazis, consultant cardiologist at Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals, specialising in investigating complex heart conditions with advanced echocardiography imaging.
