I just performed the 0.2 mile power test in the Friel bible. My max power was 1350 watts and my average was 950 watts. What was your power through this test or what was the highest power you've ever produced?
1900ish max and 850ish average...BUT....BigLeadOutGuy

I dont know how good of an indicator this test really is. Power readings vary from instrument to instrument not to mention the .2 mile test only last for about 30 seconds where as most racing situations last for hours...I think that the average and max power produced for an hour at your LT is a lot more telling than friels test...Ive just started getting into training with power and HR so I am sure someone else knows better.
