New to cycling and confused how Riders are heavier pushing out lower W/kg yet finish a few minutes up the road, or lighter pushing out lower watts - miles ahead. Same race.
Today I averaged 3.65w/kg, 73kg. Some chap was 3.4, 77kg and was like 3 minutes in front…
Where am I going wrong? no drafting in race.
Me…34.20 Average 264w 3.65w/kg w73kg
Rider 1…30.50 Average 260w 3.6w/kg w72kg
Rider 2…31.37 Average 266w 3.4w/kg w77kg
Any help welcome.
