Not sure how much of this you’ll be able to see, and it’s not directly ‘marginal gains’, but it’s proper peer-reviewed science and interesting anyway:
Team and individual performance in the Tour de FrancePosted 4 years agothe teaboyMember
From the linked article above. It may have been written by a McQuaid..!
“To test the hypotheses, a database including team characteristics and individual characteristics is constructed. This dataset consists of all cyclists who have finished the Tour in the years 2002 to 2005 (n=600). Further years were not included in the dataset, since several (official and popular) doping cases occurred from the years 2006 that would lead to biased results. This does not mean that there was less doping before 2006; it has just been less detected. ”Posted 4 years ago
I’m just finishing my last MBA assignment (essay) and I’m looking for any credible academic resource around marginal gains as spouted by Brailsford.
Obviously this this management education, so I’m not expecting peer reviewed excellence, but anything with a hint of respectability (HBR etc.) might be useful.
Can anyone point me at anything?

it does come from that, it’s a classic improvement technique however as the OP is doing an MBA he should probably do some more research himself rather than getting people to do it all for him, oh hang on it’s a management course….Posted 4 years agosteverSubscriber
