I am not a sprinter, or at least I don’t envision myself as one. I do however enjoy sprinting from time to time at the end of my rides. My peak power came after a short easy ride at 1048 watts. Three weeks ago I sprinted at the end of a solo century at .68 IF that had 4000+ feet of climbing and hit 950 watts. Today I hit 986 watts after 56 miles of .73 IF and 5500 feet of climbing.
I feel like my peak wattage should be higher when I am fresh based off these numbers. What gives?
