I’m a roadie but enjoy our monthly TT events. I’m going to start SSB soon and compete in these monthly events during this training.
What I’d like to know is, if I train predominately on the TT bike, assuming that I am say for example 10-15% lower power output in the TT bike vs road, am I risking not maximising potential gains. Am I instead closing the gap between the two rather than pushing my body and increasing my ftp? Or would I in fact find that when I get back on the road bike my power has gone up proportionately?
I am not close (I assume) to my limit, at around 3.2w/kg at the moment I should have room to grow. I would definitely rather choose the road bike if that’s going to push me the most and then switch to the TT just before and for the events and just accept the delta between the two.
Anyone have specific advice or experience in this?
