Relative Threshold Power Profile

The chart below was developed using analytical research by Dr Andrew Coggan.  The data is sourced from knowledge gained through research and indicative testing and is not the result of a comprehensive testing process.  This sheet only makes sense when read in conjunction with the Power Profile and vVO2max testing sheets.

The best scores I've recorded in Jersey are:

Female: 3.84 watts/kg

Male: 4.59 watts/kg

Note:  The above profile values have been computed during the height of the racing season when cyclists are fully rested, hydrated and at their maximum potential.  Do not compare your early season results to these
mid-season maximums!

Note:  The rider classification in the right hand column has been derived from norms and expectations and are not to be regarded as a scientific comparison bias.  The indices within these profiles are for basic information use only.
