Aw, don't rain on my parade like that.:cry: 318 for 53 minutes (or 329 for 20) is a whole lot less impressive when you see that I've ballooned to 105 kg. :innocent:

Whelp, my teammates didn't show (I knew they weren't going to) for the WTRL TTT tonight, so I decided to ride it like an iTT, and see how long I could stay out in front of the teams starting behind...

You might be surprised. I race on Zwift with a teammate who has tons more outdoor experience than me. I'm ~10 kg heavier than him and have a higher 1 min and 20 min W/kg (similar 15s and lower 5...

Yeah, this is something I have argu...uh, friendly discussions about frequently with the folks I race on Zwift with. They contend that racing me is unfair because my greater raw W at the same W/kg...

For me, the difference between 45 and 60 minutes is a touch over 1% (290 to 287). There's a bit more of a dropoff at 75 and 90 because I've been using Zwift races to get back into shape after...

Is he a fatty like me? My Zwift-FTP was ~320 (couldn't hold that for an hour, but could do ~300) when I was 105 or so kg (and I was probably doing ~10-12 hours a week). I don't know how much of...

And the fact that there's no coasting. Even in what I thought were long, consistent efforts outside, I only realized how many microbreaks I took (even unintentionally) until I went inside and all...

I can push harder on flats than I can for the same length of time on a climb. Something about how speed is a positive feedback loop for me. I see myself going fast and feel like the hurt is doing...
