There are some guys who go up in 35 mins, doing 250w, HR at 110.


270w gave me 46:59 without really tanking it, real ADH did 47 mins at 290w so not too far out

I like the corner splits feature, adds a good dimension to it.

Descending is just free points though, dont have to pedal for 10 minutes

Where do you get your power for the Alpe segment? I can see my time on Strava (is that what you guys are using?) but no power for that specific effort.

I still prefer races though, as they are more engaging, and you do get a bit of ebb & flow as you would on a normal triathlon bike course. The power surges are good practice for either hills, or when you want to pass someone in a competitive race, and discourage them from tagging along Very Happy

Did 100k ride Saturday, which got tasty, 100 mile ride Sunday, which was much easier and with netflix box set seemed to pass time quickly.

Can't ride out at the mo, so making the most of it but think my longest ever time on a turbo before was on Imagic doing 50 miles, but this is far more engaging and motivating to finish.

You need to stop worrying about online competitions, and get yourself down for a real race; something like IM Hamburg maybe Twisted Evil

Just warming up for a handicap event. I'm in the utility room today so have WiFi. Using the mobile dashboard I have rpm on my Assiomas, clearly ANT+-only on the laptop doesn't allow that metric.

ETA- got a flat tyre in my breakaway 2km from the end Mad Managed to stay ahead of the guy, but lost resistance for a while, and shagged my back tyre in the process! Just too powerful Very Happy
