Why do cyclists wax their legs?

Anyone who thinks that they do it exclusively for aesthetic reasons, to show the powerful muscles of the limb, is wrong. Although it may seem strange, cyclists wax their legs with the main objective of preventing infections . That's right, bike falls often involve small abrasions or superficial burns that are easier to heal and heal if the legs are completely hairless, according to sports doctors.

Another reason is for practical reasons. At the time of the first competitions, most of the cyclists apply copious creams to massage and warm the muscles before the effort. The contact of the ointment with the hair of the leg is quite unpleasant, since the hairs become tangled and cause minor discomfort, according to the cyclists.
