Well, yes. But perhaps a little slack is in order. Where's that graph!? Ah, had to search for a while to find one in calories rather than percent of calories. Here 'tis:

At least for this person, fat burn increases, what would you guess, maybe 30% between 50 and 120 watts. We don't know this rider's history, specialty, etc., so have no idea what he's trained to do.
