ive got a power readout from a timetrial i did the other day and id like to know if anyone has any charts that match up power, bodyweight and fitness level. Anything close is appreciated as id like to get a rough idea of where the readout puts me relative to other cyclists.

thanks

If it was done on a CompuTrainer then the numbers could be off by a bit.

Computrainers are pretty accurate aren't they? If I remember correctly, +/- 1-2 percent accuracy if calibrated properly.
