  • Ha ha. I guess it means they have facilities to test six 'athletes' at a time if we bring twelve, hence the break.

    I could be there for 6pm, but whatever suits everyone else really.

  • This is going to hurt so much

  • Who are these athletes?

  • You Mat. And Nick.

  • Why don't we just do 12 in one session?
    1 X 20 then someone else jumps on the other 1 X 20.

    Think of the combo FTP scores possible here.

  • I doubt it would make much difference.

    Might be better if 10 of us did 2 minutes each, twice.

  • @Ved any idea on pedal/cleat compatibility?

  • The full test protocol is as follows:

    • Do a standardised 15 minute warm up. The recommend WU is a progressive build up where athletes ramp it a little higher every 3 mins and then end in a 10sec sprint.

    • Then do a maximal 3 min effort. That means, go out as hard as possible and hang on. If they have access to power or speed then try to hang on to a speed they cannot sustain for 2 mins and then keep pedalling. The idea is that they cannot ramp it up at the end of the 3 min effort.

    • Have a 30 min rest. Have some food or gel or drink.

    • Then do a 12 min paced effort. This isn't like the 3 min effort but they should be on the red line the whole way. Again, they shouldnt be able to ramp it up at the end but they shouldn't be dying.

    Does this answer your question? If not then let me know and I can see if there is any more information

  • You bring your own bike afaik.

  • That's a really stupid FTP test. It's not going to give you any useful values.

    I'm out.

  • I am available for the beers.

  • Agree. Would be lolz though. And beerz.

  • I came for the FTP, I stayed for the men.

  • Just Googled Revbox, it's just a speed sensor with an app, that I guess you tell it what trainer you are using, and it guestimates your power output, bit like TrainerRoad and Zwift.

    Damo, you might be able to beat your 40 watt FTP or whatever it was.

  • Will reconsider if the test and beer are both free?

  • Don't count on it....

  • Will FTP for beers.

  • Just released. I was going to bring the Brommy!!

  • What is beer preference ?

  • I will have to reschedule this due to a software issue.
