you know, smart trainers really aren't smart. infact they can be down right dumb. they only implement a PID loop inside when in erg mode. in erg mode a target power is defined and the trainer will run the loop increasing or decreasing resistance in order to maintain the target power. it is the application that makes these things smart. it is doing what your application told it to do but you simply can't keep up. i don;t mean that insultingly so don't take it that way. pretty sure i cannot do 300% on the third do let alone the first go so kudos to you there. i also could never peddle at 130, my knees wont permit that.
