Cx magazine had this article. Not enough info on the methodology but they concluded that training at high temps can not only improve hot weather performance but even cold weather performance. Perhaps of some interest????

Actually, study used a very low level of effort (50%) in order to provide some heat stress with minimal training effect.
The magnitude of their reported improvements was quite large (6%!) compared with, say, the 2-3% improvements reported from altitude training.

Manufacturers of in-home high altitude environment tents see a drop in sales. They hire scientists to generate tests that point to altitude being superior to heat-training, or the dangers of heat training, hoping to reinvigorate altitude tent sales.
New era of manufacturers and start ups specializing in in-home, high-temperature training environments. Lobbyist contingent is formed to help these new manufacturers deal with politicians and institutions after use of this technique is somehow implicated in a performance enhancement method that is illegal or dangerous (see prior).

While plausible I'm inclined to sit on the fence until I see more on this issue. IMO this study has some methodology issues but is still interesting. Another thing to consider is that I'm of Nordic blood and hate training in the heat
