I Recently completed a Ramp test and was a bit disappointed by the result since prior test. It had been 4+ months from my prior ramp test and I have been doing lots of trainer road workouts and outdoor rides and races and I know my FTP has increased. When I preformed test I only saw a 1% increase from 302w to 307w. I did have a bit of fatigue at the time and the environment was alot hotter then the last test. But felt I would of had a ftp closer to 330w as I recently completed a 2:54hr race with 256AVG Power and 293NP. I have also been able to have alot of TSS with an 6 week average TSS of around 800TSS. My highest 60min power recorded was 285w.
My question: would my FTP be higher doing a 20min / 8min test as the power I would have to hold would be lower as I popped on the ramp test at 429w and the high power was too hard to hold?
