Posted this on another forum but didnt get much feedback.
So about 2 years ago, before I quit, I was riding my bike on/off for about 6 months, not putting too much effort into it and no gym work at all.
Earlier today I just found a power profile of one of my rides and turns out I did a personal best of 1810 watts in a random sprint effort, next best 1650...
I was around 74kg, 20 years old at the time.
I have always been told I have a strong sprint, and have won quite a few b grade crits with it but I was pretty surprised with myself with those numbers.
Not trying to show off or anything i'm just interested in how long the process takes to get to the wattage some of the top players are doing of around 2500?
