I’m Calum Brown, a Hill Climb TT specialist in the UK. I thought I would post evidence of me doing over 1000w for 60sec because whether or not this was possible was something I would have loved to have known previously.
So if anyone is in the same boat and like me was frustrated about the lack of available information… I’m happy to be transparent with my numbers and show at least what I’ve managed so far.
I’m not a massive guy so God knows that some of the big kilo riders are capable of !! Info is scarce. My training weight is 80kg (176lbs). Competition weight goes down to ~76kg (167lbs).
I was close to achieving it while racing some Hill Climbs TTs last year but I’m much fitter this year and have done it twice (on two different powermeters) within training now. While 60sec power wasn’t a goal for me this year, I think 1100w for 60sec appears feasible once I peak for competitions!
