  1. Can anyone recommend a route to take around Cape Town (I'm from overseas but based in Somerset West for the summer) that would be suitable for a 60 minute FTP test? I've just ordered my first power meter, but can't think of anywhere near me that doesn't either have too much decent or intersections.
  2. Hi Guys Need some guidance from anyone using the Trainingpeaks Premium account. I am running with their annual training plan and using it as a guide to manage my weekly TSS. My query is around the Form and Fatigue indicators, I had a heavy TSS score last week due to a stage event over the weekend, plunging my Fatigue score way up and consequently my Form score way down. Today it's still sitting at Fatigue 66 and Form -33 The app naturally recommended some rest for the Monday, but it's still suggesting it for the past two days. I know its probably just an algorithm and I should listen to my body, but keen to hear your thoughts / experience on this. I did an interval session yesterday anyway which went okay - but I just want to make sure I guess.
  3. Good morning, I realise there are severe inefficiencies and external factors that make this a difficult question to answer, but I'd like to glean a rough range of FTP/kg ranges that correspond to PPA seeding. This is not meant to be a discussion on the determination of FTP (and curse you if you quote your 20 minute estimate without first removing 5%), I've read Hunter Allen's book. I also don't want to get bogged down in the PPA seeding system, I realise it has its flaws but I think that in most cases it gives a very fair indication of ability. I like the below table and would love to see something similar that slots guys into seeding groups instead of classifying them as "world class" or "novice" source: https://www.trainingpeaks.com/blog/power-profiling/ Yes other things could also affect your seeding. Maybe you suck more wheels or do a lot of work at the front. Maybe you had one exceptional race, never to be repeated, because some strong guys dropped back to your seeding and helped you do a time well out of your range (I think this happened to me at Emperors by accident). Maybe you simply don't race tactically at all so your FTP indicates you should be seeded higher than you are. Despite all this I still think there should be a broad correlation. Humor me, it gives me something to work towards. If I knew 3.7W/kg would give me a decent chance of seeding in C that is somehow motivating. At the moment I have NO idea. My W/kg is 3.08 and my PPA index 26 or F seeding, measurements taken within weeks of one another. In the above table that puts me between Fair and Moderate.
  4. Hi Hubbers! Hope everyone had a great long weekend filled with quality time with family, and a few miles on the bike as well! Being relatively new to power training, and the obsession with weight and your power-to-weight ratio, can someone please clarify what weight they are talking about? Is it your body weight alone (birthday suit) or you, your bike, all of your kit, and water bottles, and whatever goodies you might ride/race with (puncture repair etc.)? Thanks!
  5. Hi All Interested to see what type of Wattbike or Power workouts everyone is doing. Perhaps in the following format: 1- Type of workout (VO2, Threshold etc) 2- Wattbike or power meter 3- Actual workout I will start with one of my favorites. 1- Threshold 2- Wattbike 3- Workout: 15 min warm-up - Z1, Z24 x 8 min sets @ 80-90% FTP. Every 2 min during each 8 min set surge to 160% of FTP for 5 seconds.10 min warm downLimp home

  7. After 3 months of exclusively riding on my VR Trainer I'm afraid to admit that I've pretty much used up all the interesting programmes and imagination that I posses. As it's still a few months before my shoulder will be healed enough to be allowed out onto tar I fear that I'll lose interest in the pain being inflicted on me by my VRT. Anyone got some suggestions to spice things up a bit through different power based workouts or specific intervals that are: a) a bit different b) beneficial c) FTP or PPO rather than heart rate or perceived effort based d) don't drag and seem longer than they are Please share your favourites.
