If you're like most people you probably produce less power in your TT position. My FTP is ~10% lower in my TT position. I setup a second athlete in Cycling Peaks for my TT FTP so that I get the correct values for IF and TSS.
For calendar year 2006 here are my totals:
ATL max 121
CTL max 80
I'm a cat 3 who's competitive in TT's and occasionally competitive in road races. This year I did ~20 road races, 5 TT's, and 10 CX races.
Here's a two part article I put together illustrating how I've developed my training plan model for next year. Perhaps you'll find this of some use if you're doing the same.
I developed these based on two season's worth of data, particularly weeks where I go to AZ in the winter and do 20+ hours of training in a single week.
Each of these two years I've inched my numbers up slightly and have been able to bounce back with 3 days of recovery. I've pushed the numbers...
Here's a PM modeling tool I put together based on a spreadsheet I found here a few months ago.
The only change I made to the original calculation was to show TSB based on the previous day's TSS. After doing this and pasting in data from CPS the PM chart it created was dead on what CPS had so...
I've thought about this and having experience developing web sites I know it's possible. I think all that is keeping someone from doing it is the minimal return on investment since there are not many racers out there that use power and even fewer who would pay for such a service...
It is strange that they haven't done any formal comparitive analysis yet. How hard can it be? Find a handful of riders put the stuff on their bikes and get it done! I think such a study could be completed in a matter of weeks.
Keep in mind just because you see zero watts while coasting doesn't necessarily mean your torque is zero. The only way to actually ensure this is to switch over to torque mode and see zero torque while coasting. Your owner's manual will tell you how to do this.
I and several other people I race with have been using the CH Aero cover for a few years and have never had a problem with screws coming loose.
There's data available to show the differences between a disk and cover.
As you're finding out when you ask a question here you'll get serveral different answers. For the last 4 seasons I used the Friel methodology and saw significant improvements in my peformance progressing from cat 5 to 3 and even winning a few races along the way.
This year after spending a lot...
