A bit of an update to put some stats around the ride.
Watts/kg at 1 Hour – 1.98
I’m really happy with this. It’s a Strava estimate, but my long-term average has been around 1.5W/kg.
My last FTP test on a KICKR was 238W for an hour, so an estimate of 214W is plausible for the start of a 5 hour effort.
Garmin Recovery Time – 67 hours!
And I thought that the 58 hour recovery time calculated after l’etape was bad.
I can’t agree with this metric as I felt quite good at the end of the ride. I could have ridden home if Chris and Christopher didn’t have to get back to Sydney so quickly.
At this point I’d been coasting from the small climb after the loop. Smooth, straight, steep road and a tight tuck.
