Was revisiting Hunter Allens Fatigue Profile page:
I previously blogged about it here:
And there is another writeup at PezCycling:
Tells me a couple of things...
- my L7-Neuromuscular absolute numbers still suck but are a bit higher than last year
- but my endurance at that level is very good, what I can do I can do for a long time
- which means I'm not "explosive"
- L6-Anaerobic Capacity is similar
- By the time we get to L5-VO2Max the numbers start to look relatively higher and still with good endurance
So if want out sprint anyone I have to go early so that the sprint drags out to 1-2 minutes minimum. So that most other Cat 4's are running out.
Comparing my numbers to the PezCycling example:
- Much higher L7-Neuromuscular
- Slightly higher L6 Anaerobic Capacity
- Lower L5-VO2Max
- Slightly lower L4-Lactate Threshold
This guy will beat me in a one up sprint up to one minute. But as long as I can stay on his wheel for that minute I should be able to get past him at two minutes.
Alternately if I can jump from behind and get a gap he cannot close in less than about one minute I stand a good chance of staying in front of him. Typically this means going from about 600m (3 laps on the track.)
