After watching the race below and watching the power output it’s left me wondering have I done something stupid (or wildly over estimating my prowess).
Last year I had an ftp of ~240W, it’s dropped cos of Xmas and lazy time to ~193W, the video is showing fairly consistent times in 300+ watt ranges, I’ve entered my first cat 4 race in April and second ever (first was male/female British Racing Go Race taster thing).
I had zero expectations about being up the rankings, but now I’m even wondering if I’ll get a couple laps in before dropping. I’m back on base build so might get ftp up to 210-220 come April but I can prob get a refund and don’t want to shell out more on the day race license + travel costs for a 2 lap dropping an DNF.
If this were you what would you think? It is nice to have a goal mind you.
