    I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that, but my gut feeling is that doing half at tempo/sweet spot and then hammering a bit of VO2 max isn't representative of FTP. I'm probably wrong though.

    You can always test your numbers though with 2x20 at FTP. Can you hold that figure? It should feel hard, but sustainable.

    I was really impressed with my Road Machine's accuracy compared to real watts. It did over read (by about 20 watts), but it was pretty consistent along the whole curve. Are you unsure of the accuracy of your vectors?

    I'm happy to be thought of as odd, but I quite like the turbo. It's that satisfying feeling of putting in proper sustained quality work, with none of the distractions you get when out and about. Also, being able to really hurt yourself I find much safer indoors.

    I'll try when near a computer.

    Stretching has become the difference between lots of pain and limited riding and long, comfortable miles and the ability to push (for me) high power.

    Sorry, I just posted a link to a great article on stretching, but it's vanished. I'll try to find it elsewhere.

    Edit - found it in an email. PM me your email address and I'll send it to you.

    Just to chip in, though please remember I'm as new to this power thing as you, but your CTL probably won't be right because you've only been collecting data for a short amount of time (6 weeks?). Unless you've seeded it of course.

    EDIT -

    Also, see this in regards to testing FTP.

    I'll be borrowing that then. Cheers.

    What's that route like out to Windsor? I'll be doing that trip in a couple of weeks, en route to Scherrit at The Bike Whisperer, and it's much shorter and more direct than the route I had planned.
