1000W for 4 Minutes

I heard about some track racer being able to ride for 4 minutes at ~1000W, can anyone shine some light on this?

Well, 11.4 seems to not believe this statement, so it never happened. Thanks!

I don't think it's possible for a typical ducati to put out only 1000W (1.3 horsepower) ... you hit the throttle at all and the power probably jumps well past that.

Same reason people care about horsepower I guess.

That would result in a 4 km individual pursuit of well under 4 minutes.

Not a chance.

WR for team pursuit is right around 4 minutes.

Okay, memory test here- I remember reading several months ago, probably in the road forum, where some "large" professional cyclist held the record for wattage done at some cycling show on stationary machine. Seems like that was 1200 watts or something, not necessarily for 4 minutes. Does that ring a bell with anyone? This guy was like 6'-6" with weight to match, and pro-caliber racer.
