I don't have a powermeter yet, but I believe in season form I could do 20watts more. For next season I hope to get 400w for that time. That is avg power for whole 'race'.

Well, hello there, it's virtual trainer race! It shows your power and everything else, but you cant use a trainer as a powermeter on road, can you?

Does that Tacx have actual strain gauges in it or is it deriving power from speed?

Ahh, ta.

I didn't mean 'who' in the identification sense, more who he was in the grand scheme of racing.

And nice second place mate! :thumbup:

Ah thanks! But that isn't me who took the video.. ;-)

That's Jean-Philippe Roberge Thibault.. Another talented MTB dude.

I was there shooting photos.. I'm just a lonely roadie/trackie.. Dirt and mud scare me. ;-)

You keep winning pedaling thru corners like that and you will be getting bumped up in no time (or being called sandbagger :) Nice form and congrats.

BTW - that takes balls riding a 4s crit sans gloves :)
