I'm not a diesel, far from it. But I can do breakaways providing they aren't long, so 10mi out or something at most. It is true also that I can do multiple accelerations.

Here's 3 of my 300+...

Perspective, Larry. When I say I am rubbish at climbing it doesn't mean I get dropped on climbs by everyone. :D It just isn't where my strengths are. I'm a flat road, crit-type rider but pretty good...

So you think I'm misinformed about my own experiences? :D

90% of all riders who have ever beaten me on climbs are larger than me - tall guys, great shape, heavier. But I'm faster on the flat and...

That's the thing, it isn't nearly as unusual as you might think, I see smaller riders performing to the opposite of what is trying to be taken as granted in this thread and vice versa. It's more down...

Same people! I'm one of the smallest guys in my area so I generally have to compete with larger chaps. Par for the course for me! No choice, being only 5ft 6 and 141lbs. :D

Nearly everyone is...

Yep.

I've been using Elite level primarily because at amateur level the variables are vast. A big unit in road cycling at a high level is typically less than 200lbs with only a few exceptions - I...

And yet, no disrespect, I'm 141lbs and would drop you from my wheel relatively easily even on a pancake flat road. I'm not trying to be funny here, it's just that absolute power isn't what you think...

Taking a 175lb rider pushing 300W with a W/kg of 3.75 and a 145lb rider pushing 300W with a W/kg of 4.60 as a baseline to start my thought process on this...

If you are physically stronger in terms of W/kg than someone else, you will be able to punch a hole through wind more easily. Larger riders tend to have greater muscle mass and if they are in good...
