Generalized torques of the professional cyclist: (a) total generalized torques caused by gravity (∑Gi*), inertia (∑Ni*), and muscle action (∑Mi*), (b) generalized torques caused by net muscle joint torques (Mi*), (c) generalized torques caused by gravity forces (Gi*), (d) generalized torques caused by inertia forces (Ni*).
