Forgot to push finish ramp just

I forgot to push “finish ramp test” after my legs stopped spinning. Therefore the test continued for about 55 seconds until I finally realized my folly and clicked finish. Does this skew my FTP result?

Don’t think so. Before I stopped doing them my best ramp test result came from my first ramp test where I tried to plug on for a bit.

Yeah, the dialogs at the end of the ramp test are confusing. I raised a feature request about making them clearer.

But it doesn’t really matter how you completed the test, the SW takes your highest minute of power and then 75% of that (with some adjustments for power spikes and the like) for your FTP value.

Not at all, the “extra” time will not count.

A good example from a test I did last year. The results are based on the highlighted 1 minute, but you can see the test kept going for another 1.5 minutes after:

@univox Nice. Thanks for the insight. I see you like continued suffering after your suffering. That’s next level, m8.

I’m so confused. Did you realise you weren’t riding as hard but just persevered anyway!?

  1. It was my first ramp test after a long hiatus from riding. So I wasn’t all that familiar with testing and I think I just had the right gearing combination that allowed me to keep turning the pedals over without meeting the power target. My power was more or less the same for 3 minutes before I finally stopped.

  2. It was also a group test, so I had a friend cheering me on. That seemed to help me push on, even if it didn’t result in any benefit.
