What is the relation between FTP or any other Critical Power KPI for that matter with Temperature?
To be more specific -
Assuming I know my FTP which was obtained while training for a long period in a 20C (degrees) environement and I use that information to manage myself in a race.
So far so good.
Now I want to use this data to do an identical race but in a 40C (degrees) environment.
Logic predicts that I won’t be able to achive same results because my body is not prepared for such heat and I assume I won’t be able to hold the % of power I’m used to per my FTP.
So what good is it to know and quote the FTP value without expressing alongside other effecting parameters of the environment (or other) in which it was obtained?
I hope my question is understood.
