Junior max power and power to weight


Recommended Posts


* Peak power output for elite cyclists ranges from 400 ? 550 W


They mean threshold power surely? Peak power (5s) should be well up in the 1500 plus range.


Peak Power (PPO or MAP) is the result of a ramped test of ever increasing power over time(there are several protocols) that lead to the peak power that is sustained for the last ramp being measured - this is where Marius' figure comes in.




So that would correspond to power at VO2Max?


Yes - with the caveat that VO2 max is actually reached.
