I'm a good sprinter for a Masters 35+ racer and have seen 39-40mph on a number of occasions but I'm no AP... not even close. The only time I even used a 53/11 for a sprint is with a tailwind. AP can probably hold 1400-1500 watts for 15-20 seconds which is unimaginable for us normal guys.

800 watts, I put out 800 watts doing long leadouts tonight on prime laps.
what a stud

what category did you rise to?

and was this done after 100+ miles of racing, or a roundy round 30 mile crit in a local park?
