Analyzing my first race as cat3 in a pro/1/2/3 field

Downloaded the powertap data and was surprised at what the numbers show.

Even though there were a lot of accelerations in the race, the numbers show a near "personal best" for 30 minutes power output (cough cough).

That would explain why later in the race I was unable to keep up with accelerations. Normally I have little trouble keeping up with riders accelerating but when the endurance number is pushed to the limit everything else is wiped off the table.
