5 second power - 1210w - 16.13w/kg
1 minute power - 605w -8.06w/kg
5 minute power - 377watts - 5W/kg
20 minute power - 338watts - 4.5w/kg
FTP - 300W - 4W/kg
haven't had my power meter long, I think i could hit higher numbers for all these but these are what I've got so far.
the first 4 are from golden cheetah, the FTP is from doing a 20minute time trial and multiplying the watts from that by .95
golden cheetah has my CP at 321 which is likely to be more accurate?
also, I've looked at the Training and racing with a power meter book and these all fall in the middle to top of the cat 2 group. how does the american cat 2 group compare to cat2 riders in the uk?
I'm 24 years old, 75kg and have been riding about a year. had my first race 2 days ago.
was a cat 4 crit and i felt like i had the legs to compete but couldn't get my positioning right to move up on the last few laps corners so i finished in the middle of the bunch
As you may or may not have found, the power profile isn't too relevant to actually racing with success. A local racer is a Cat 1 that gets about half dozen wins a season and has about a half dozen national titles under his belt. His FTP is a whopping 320 at 155-160lbs...
I have a higher w/kg and I don't have nearly as much success as he does.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate
