I’ve read through a bunch of Forum posts, and there is a lot of conflicting information.
I recently did a ramp test which set a higher than expected FTP, When I did my first workout post test I couldn’t complete it, not even close.
Well after lots of reading I now know a ramp test is pretty useless at gauging a real FTP.
I’m one of those that can hold a high wattage for a short time, but not a mid wattage for a long time.
I’m a mountain biker, and not a road rider so the strengths are really different.
The reason I even did a ramp test was because the last time I tried doing a Short FTP test I ended up going downhill as the warmup ended, and couldn’t produce more than 180w.
Again mountain bike, 1 single ring with a 34 tooth front so I can’t do much going down a hill.
I’m looking for a suggested route that has ideally a gradual uphill, and no downhill.
I looked on What’s on Zwift, and there weren’t any FTP test routes that i could find.
Dear Zwift. If this is such an important part of the platform why is it so hard to make it happen?
