Dr. Evil writes a new post.
In there he does the Watt calculations for the recent Vuelta stage, telling us:
This year’s group of favorites, with Piepoli, Sastre and Menchov took 25’30”, with VAM= 1823m/h.
Wind and drafting can always affect the times of the ascent and the ensuing valuations, but assuming the body weights of Sastre, Menchov and Piepoli to be 58, 64, e 52 kg respectively, then the average watts developed would be 364, 402, and 326.
Can anyone walk me (us) through the calculation where he used their VAM, their weight, the UCI bike weight (15.9#) to get their watts? I guess he also used the hill gradient?
I would really like to know how he does this estimation.
Thanks to the super geeks who can show us how this is done.by
