I know, newbie with question about the ramp test. sorry but just a lot of post to read through to see if someone asked in the past… and I’m somewhat lazy to read through them all.
I did my second ever ramp test today with TR. My number are lower then the first ramp test, and I was expecting this do to lighter volume of riding I’ve been doing… still i was interested enough in the results that I was comparing the two and noticed what I’m thinking would be a “miss” on the power data of my first test.
My first ramp test recorded me with a 854 max power and my second ramp test had me at 414 for max power. I never failed a workout with my first results so I feel that number was legitimate. My second ramp test suggested a lower FTP but only by 8w so two things that have me a little baffled are,
1st is how did I get a 854 max power on the first test and the 2nd is how i am over 400w lower on max power on the second test but still with in 10 point on my first FTP?
(edit: I should add that my first test was 306ftp and my second test suggested 298)
although this is a little vexing I’m not all that worried about it… I’m just a little curious…maybe this is a question i should be asking tech support?
PS. I’m not quite sure were the 266 FTP from the first test came from…
