The last sentence of the Abstract section (p. 53) should now read:

In 2002–2005 and 2007, the production version of the ‘Swift Spin’ TT suit was worn by the winner of the Tour de France; by the women's hour record holder and by road, TT and track cyclists who set four world records, six Olympic records, and won seven medals in individual cycling races at the 2004 Athens Olympics.

The caption for Figure 5 (p. 58) should now read:

Drag coefficient (Cd) versus Reynolds number (Re) for a full scale, lower leg model showing the effect of covering the bare leg in a roughly textured stretch fabric.

Lastly, the publisher also wishes to amend Tables 1–3. The corrected tables are presented below:
