Yesterday I tried to do a short (20 minute) FTP test. It felt like there was a significant (total?) disconnect between the program and my Wahoo Kickr Trainer. I am connected via Apple TV 4K. Whether I was in the warm-up mode, or in the test itself, I couldn’t get the trainer to respond to what was asked of me. Asked to increase my Watts to 180 or 190, I couldn’t get above 90 for what seemed like 2-4 minutes, even if I brought my cadence to 120 and increased to the highest gear on the trainer to try to increase the resistance. Then, once it began to respond (again, 3-4 minutes later), the watts would rise to 280 and stay there for several minutes, even if I was asked to rest and bring the wattage to 80 or 90. It was also difficult to affect the resistance. The program didn’t respond effectively to increasing the gear. Is the problem with the Kickr? Is it with the Apple TV? Is the problem with the time of day (too many people taking the test at one time)?
I feel that my test is invalid. Not real keen on doing it all over again, but perhaps I have no choice. How do I ensure that the program respond appropriately and I can get an accurate test?
