The most I’ve done for 2h was Boarstone a month back was 78%. That was a pretty steady state ride.
My best recent hour set on Christmas eve when I was going off an FTP was 250w for the central hour and 2mins of Unicorn-1. I am using that for my current FTP so I am pretty sure of it. I felt after getting to much night DOMs (maybe a lack of sunlight this year) I should ease back the intensity.
90% for two hours. What was interesting there was absolute no difference between 90 and 120 minutes in terms of RPE - it was purely mental effort but a lot more fun to do than 90 min as it was some kind of challenge and something new.
239 avg for 2 hours. FTP of 279=85.5%. This was a workout though(1x105 minutes @ 90%) and not an all out effort, I’d assume with the promise of a couple days off after and not having to ride a minute more than 120, I’d be able to nail 90-91%
had to tweak the search from 2:00:00 to 1:59:45 because that April 9th ride is 2:00:35 on Strava and 1:59:55 on WKO. Stupid auto-pause. Turned off auto-pause on my Garmin a year or two ago, to prevent stupid discrepancies like that from showing up (and to stop lying to myself).
PSA: turn off auto-pause!
Playing around with the formula, for 3 hours I’ve got two rides around 74% of FTP:
Haven’t tried it yet. I could do Boarstone which be a good one for 2 hours.
My estimate, based on my current fitness (struggling with minor calf injury and generally feeling a bit shitty) will be 75-80%.
Ah yeah, I shouldn’t have said “The climb”. There are multiple routes to the Teide from different directions. I did the climb from the direction of Playa de las Americas (Teide | Strava Ride Segment in Arona, Islas Canarias, Spain). And I cut the “effort” at the end of the climb to the crest of the big crater. To get to the actual Teide mountain you then do the ~150m(?) descent and another ascent (you can see that in the graph you showed) .
