    A peek into Levi's power at ToC

    I saw this in the Wattage group:

    Yeah, so that's 6.45 W/kg for 30 minutes, after that mountain stage and the breakaway for 2nd

    http://blog.trainingpeaks.com/2008/0...-2008html.html

    I know it's just what he said, and not data. But still.

    So my 4.26 W/kg FTP is like his endurance pace I suppose. To match his 30m W/kg, I'd need to be rocking 522W. He's, umm... Fast.

    Anyone else wish we could get data like this for Indurain? I know we can extrapolate, but the real targets or data would be cool.

    Hey I only rock 4.1 W/kg, so you're doing better than me.

    I'm at a whopping 3.7 W/kg. Once I lose the rest of my weight I will only be at 3.9 W/kg.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I'm interested in knowing by what amount his power production fluctuates between TT, drops, and climbing positions.

    I always like knowing the pro's power. I'm not sure why.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    Allegedly (approximately) LA's output.

    Humiliation? Self-flagellation?
