Strength to Weight!

At 81-82 kg, I'm a little heavier than I'd like to be, but still not such a bad weight for bicycle racing. I'd like to be able to hold the "magic seven" of 7 W/kg this weekend at Bear Mountain. We'll see what happens.

As a numbers guy, I've been looking at my power curve lately. According to PowerAgent, this is what I'm capable of developing, in watts, for the corresponding time periods:

1144 W for 5 sec
620 W for 30 sec
526 W for 1 min
375 W for 5 min
358 W for 10 min
335 W for 30 min
316 W for 60 min
277 W for 120 min

This isn't bad, considering the minimal amount of structure to my training, but falls far short of most decent racing cyclists. PowerCranks have helped push this curve up. Notice that major dip around 5 minutes. Hm.
