I did two ramp tests in ERG mode in the last two months, which both gave weird results. I am now not sure whether it’s due to me just failing the test or something is wrong from a software/hardware perspective. Obviously, I hope the last but I’m not sure.
In both cases I had the issue that I am not able to still generate the required power values of the threshold, while I still feel fine (to the extent that’s still possible in a ramp test). Today, I tried to solve this by increasing my cadence considerably as I noticed the problem. Alas, to no avail. It feels completely different than failing previous ramp tests: then I was completely wasted. Now, I have the issue that I still have a few minutes left in the tank.
Coincidentally, I am using an ANT+ dongle since these last two ramp tests on a desktop. Could this be an issue of the ERG mode itself failing on me? Or am I just getting worse?
