Riding Told Off By Angels I finish with a best average power rating for 20 minutes that is slightly higher than my Full Frontal FTP. Since I’m doing the workout using ERG mode I assume it’s designed for this to happen. The 20 minutes encompass the final 9 minutes of the Rookie race, followed by the 3 minutes of rest, and finally the 8 minute Angels climb. I’m not going to change my FTP number based on this but I was curious…
- Is this intentional? Is everyone seeing the same results?
- Is this actually a better way to do the Full Frontal test (using a 9/3/8 minute format of some sort for the 20 minute FTP portion) or would doing something like that defeat the whole purpose of the test?
- What is it saying that these 20 minutes, which are after some fairly stressful other parts, is at a slightly higher power rating than the test FTP numbers? That my FTP number should be higher? That we love suffering?
