In a race on Tuesday someone put out put out 420 watts for 40 minutes. Not impossible, but this was a female who seems to otherwise potter round on an MTB at 12mph.
Given here rapid rise to A+ cat she seems to have developed a taste for racing. I did post a slightly sarcastic comment on Strava, but she took it as a compliment - obviously oblivious…
In a race today another female rider but out 4.3w/kg for an hour. OK, doable, but would be fairly elite, again not really backed up by reality. Again, I don’t think she is purposely cheating, just obviously thinks that is how good she is.
It’s not that I am picking on female riders - it’s just it stands out a little more when you see high watts.
That aside, is there anywhere to flag this so someone can just send them a friendly message saying your numbers don’t look quite right?
To be honest I’m surprised the first case wasn’t picked up in ZwiftPower - didn’t they use to flag super high wattage?
