The newer Garmin 500 software allows up to 5 data screens. I set one as my "race" screen. It shows elapsed time and distance so I know where I am in the race. I have just enough self-control to not change the screen to one that shows power data.

In your own experiences, of course.


I find the opposite and have no issue seeing my power data in a race. Nor do guys like Chris Froome. But again, that's just myself (and Chris).

If you aren't able to look at power data during the race and use it to your benefit, then you need to train your brain !
