Power : 2 or 3 lightbulbs worth

Depending on whether we're talking about 75 or 100 watt bulbs my spindly legs could power more than two of them... for an hour. It seems like such a waste of energy... but I'm still pleased to be producing more power than in 2007.

It looks like the sprint is the area most improved. I got the powermeter in August 2007, so the 2007 numbers are probably less than perfect, but I wouldn't say they're irrelevant.

Signed up for my first cyclocross race of 2008 coming up this Saturday. Haven't been riding much so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

Hey-should post on how you came up with your numbers for the lay person

I agree with you.

I wrote about it once before in this post.

I got the chart from an article by Andrew Coggan who writes for Training Peaks.
