Re: FTP Testing

Don't know my FTP, however, whilst in Brisbane for work this week I used an exercise bike that output power. Maybe it can be calculated ?

I slowly ramped up the resistance and sat on 230W for the last 5 minutes of the workout. I'm around 75 - 76kg.

I have mainly ridden it early morning weekdays and there is ever only light bike and pedestrian traffic. First weekend ride was last Sunday and there was way less bike tr...

Re: Fitz's challenge rides in October

You guys a freaks !!!! The 105km was hard enough last year but peer pressure from my mates has pushed me to enter the 165km this year. I do recommend it though. As Adrian said, it is well organised and you can also fundraise for the Kid's Cancer Project if you so choose. I've only ever ridden 105km ...

I read cav has dropped 4kg's in prep for the Olympics. Not sure if that's enough to affect his power but may just open it up a little for the likes of Goss and Greipel.
