    Wattless(or witless) commentators.

    Watching the TdF coverage and Paul commented that top track sprinters can put out...........yes.............1000w!

    Where do they get this stuff sometimes?

    I am well on my way to London 2012.

    Ugh.

    I guess, technically, he's right. It may even be a true max power for a top junior woman...

    I heard something like that earlier in the week, and they were putting the road sprinters at 1300-1500, which I suspect is more than a little on the low side.

    Track sprinters do ~2300 (as reported elsewhere by Jamie Staff) but only *very* briefly, typically on standing starts in the kilo.

    No, we have a junior girl who can do better than 1,000 watts.
