just a thought, how are you connecting your sensors to Rouvy? Ant+ or Bluetooth? and what sensors are they?

Just trying to help you get to the bottom of any real issue

I set the trainer to the midpoint resistance level. Next time I will set it to the highest level.

 

I am running Rouvy on my iPad and my Garmin ANT+ sensors are connected via the CABLE device, which converts ANT+ to Bluetooth.

well done Neville(Did you use a smart trainer?), Thanks, that was quite tough. my average power was 215 for the duration.

Mine was 219, we seemed to pretty well matched throughout the race

Having ridden the race once already i knew i had to save a bit for those last 2 km

You could have warned me, I thought we were mates after that time we met briefly walking up a moerse climb in 2011? Maar nee ....

Thanks, although I’m a bit puzzled as I certainly don’t think I should have been that far ahead of everyone.

 

I used a dumb trainer and I have logged my correct weight etc. Not sure what else I could have set incorrectly that would distort my performance.

 

I’m fact, I slowed down on purpose after the halfway mark as I felt a bit guilty!

 

Anything that I should check?

 

Sorry I'm not sure how to check this.

 

I know on Rouvy its recommended to do a calibration check often, on the power beam this is a roll down test from a predetermined speed until the wheel stops, not sure how you do this on other trainers.

What was your max and avg heart rate for the race and how does that compare to your Max HR you can maintain for 10 - 20 minutes?

 

For example my max was 165 and avg 151 which is consistent for my current fitness levels

My average and max heart rate seemed quite a bit lower than it would be at the same speed in the real world. My average was 121 and I normally average at about 135. My max was 139 and I normally max at about 165 in the real world.

 

I suspect my resistance setting is too low on the trainer even though I followed the recommendations on the trainer manual.

My trainer got so difficult to pedal half way up the hill I couldn’t pedal it anymore..... even standing on one pedal with all my weight it wouldn’t turn

See if you can calibrate you trainer. Helps

What was your equipment? Powermeter? Might explain it.

I'm not sure how the resistance works and affects performance from the dumb trainer aspect.

All i know is my smart trainer does it all and I don't need to adjust anything other than the calibration thing. 

 

Maybe try contact the Rouvy customer support
