I would like to use the opportunity to propose a video that aims at delivering max effort for 1 straight hour.
I would just like to see that FTP value in my records list and then be able to compare it against the Half Monty and/or 4DP results.
Now, you could say that I just could do it on my own, take the open 60 and run with it.
But I noticed that (at least for me (Attacker type btw)) it is easier to vary the output a bit. If I have to do adopt the output by myself with no guidance, I just don’t know with which number I will end up.
Team Scream does a good job there, but it is just a few minutes short of that full hour. Furthermore, I would probably prefer it a bit more equalized (e.g skip the break of switching from front to 5th position).
To summarize it: I actually don’t want an FTP-test type of video. Give all you have for one straight hour and you see your score afterward, but the vice-versa. If I say, start the video in ERG mode at 100%, I will end up with the FTP.
Plus, I would like the Sufferfest/Wahoo science team to develop (if that is possible for a wide range of riders) the “optimal” strategy and combination of higher and lower effort sections within that hour in order to maximize average output for that hour.
Including the warm-up and cool-down phase it would result in a ~75-80 minute video.
