    Wooohaaa!! Put the power to the wheels! :D When are going for a powermeter on your roadbike? Just don't tell the wife your new rear wheel is $$$$. ;) Today I did my third timetrial. Last few weeks my CTL dropped from 85 to 60tss/day due to lack of motivation (the summer is over and it's getting...

    Good to hear from you Tyson!! But do we really have to wait 24 nights? Can you keep it secret 24 days? You already have a FTP of 330 watts? Damn! That's fast, I have a plateau at 320 watts for 2 months now. But the good news is my FTP stayed at 320 watts while my trainings load decreased and...

    I try to move my body more backwards and higher when accelarating out of the corners. My knees are then further away from the armrests. But I also want to shorter my stem but I am afraid I will brake my patella :rolleyes: After my first TT both my knees were blue at the top of the patella due to...

    My seat is too low? I will check it soon. At the moment my road bike does not have a fork, when it's back I will compare. With two other positions I mean two different setups to compare with my current version. So I can do a regression test with 3 different positions. Interesting testing by...

    Thanks, yes, I have read the repost of the Neanderthal positioning and the new comments (I even copied it to my online google documents about aerodynamics:D). Till I saw my pictures I thought that I had to drop my aerobar at least 4 cm. But I think that my 'acromion process is no higher than the...

    Try to do an all out 60min timetrial on a course without intersections and too much corners :D Your FTP is probably higher than 190 watts. An 2 hour ride with an IF of 0.882 is not "goofing" around ;)

    I also stopped weight training to increase my CTL and FTP. I did not have the physiology of a person that does weight training but when I stopped and increased my cycling: I lost a lot of weight. With Christmas 2007 I weighted 75kg and now I weight 66kg. My FTP increased from 280 to 320 watts in...

    Where's everybody? On Holiday? I hope everything is well!! In my spare time I am just reading all the topics at slowtwitch, the wattage list and here about aerodynamics. A lot of useful stuff is already around in the various forums. Andy Coggan, Tom A. and Alex Simmons...

    Nice performance Alex. Especially your 10s power. It's very close to your 5s power. I will follow your three P's next Saturday. Saturday I have the Medical National Championships :) And when I perform well I will start at the Medical World Championships :D Wanna laugh about my position...

    Yesterday, I did my first time trial of this year. I had all kind of pacing strategies but when I started I just forgot it all... :confused: The first 5 minutes I did 361 watts :eek::eek: In the middle section of the time trial I had a very slow part: 3 min 30 sec with only 297 watts. After...

    I am two weeks back from vacation but still have to read all those threads and posts you all made. How should I work, train and read all the posts in a day that only contains 24hours?? ;) Good to hear Alex. I follow your comeback with great interest. How is everybody doing? Do the 2008 goals...

    Pacing strategy for La Marmotte (cyclo with 4 mountains)

    I have made a screenshot of my WKO file with the information about the climbs. In the first climb there were two descents: 1.) 3.2km & 6:11 2.) 1.9km & 2:27. Those two descents are the cause of the lower average power and the higher VI (1.04)

    Pacing strategy for La Marmotte (cyclo with 4 mountains)

    Hi, Just a short message: this evening I came back from my vacation and I have ridden 1300km in the car. I am more tired than after La Marmotte (not true ;)). La Marmotte was one great experience. Unfortunately my rear tire exploded in the descent of the Glandon (second flat...
