|the Pillas to the Post at Lookout mountain in Golden. I wanted to calculate the watts generated by Vaughters on Saturday when he smashed the record by 30 seconds and finished the 4.5 mile course in 17 minutes.
I just need to cut about 5 minutes off my time to catch him.
Incidently, he seems like a really nice approachable guy. It was really funny watching a Tour de France caliber cyclist standing in line in full CA green kit with tights to register for the race. As he was warming up he rode by me, I said to a friend, "that's the guy that I've picked on my Fantasy Tour team for the past 3 years." With a sheepish grin he looked at me and said, "Yea...sorry." Poor guy, he probably catches crap for that all the time. The dude can certainly go up hill fast.

|It's been down since last Thursday. I never realized how much I reference and depend on it.|
|So is 260 watts for 22 minutes pretty low?||Pack Meat|

|That's about what I generated for about 22 minutes going up LOM. I assumed that Vaughters and his bike were about 5 kg lighter than me, it looks like he produced around 360 watts.
260 watts is actually what I calculated with information from the cherry creek time trials, so I think it's accurate. It's also what I calculated for last years state TT but I had to SWAG the elevation changes.

|Hi, I'm from the east coast, what event was this that your discussing? I read in awe Vaughters win at the Colorado Classic last year. I root for our local guy that might make the tour, Floyd Landis.|| |
