That one was 47 but they're usually down to around 30-40 now that people are training instead. I got my upgrade so I don't need to do them anymore

Guys riding with power meters say it is calibrated pretty much dead on, my power profile from sports doctor says about the same. But riding on hoods definitely gives more power output than time trial bike, so there are just numbers.


Stop it. That thing is not accurate. You can use it all you want to train with put don`t put numbers on a website like it is a fact because it`s not. You`re up for a rude awakening if you try a real powermeter.

Hi

I just spent a good chunk of the morning updating my site with my favorite cyclocross photos I took this year.. You can see them here: http://www.shampoo.ca

Thanks!

Tacx trainers are often miscalibrated or become so over time. Same case with a lot of computrainers. My bike fitter used to have one for bike fitting that read high (but still worked) and it was kind of funny because my SRM would read 320ish watts, but the screen would show 350.

like he said, often mis-reading.

anyways, 5,8w/kg for 34min can get you pro.... are you pro?

No I returned to cycling basically too old, I skippped junior/U23 age that is the most important to get somewhere. But I like cycling and I like to win guys who does get paid for what they do every now and then.

But at nearly 6w/kg, that should still turn the heads of teams.

It would down here.

With that w/kg you're close to best U23 riders and if you arent full time cyclist means you still have enough room for improve and turn pro.
Of course if the numbers are correct.

i randomly stumbled on some vuelta t-t data for froome , internet browsing, and he averaged 5.8 watts/kg for the hour and finished second to tony martin. Kasparz, you and chris froome are like twins.

from my own power curve the longest time for 5.8kg is 3 minutes and 47seconds.... #foreveralone
