What’s the rough relationship between w/kg and speed? I am on a relatively flat section and doing around 2.5 on average. I just got overtaken by someone at a very high speed.
I glanced at his / her w/kg, assuming that they were the putting in a huge effort. However, the number didn’t get above 2.0 at any time and probably averaged around 1.7 w/kg.
About 90 seconds or so later that rider was showing up as over 40 seconds ahead of me. At no time did his / her number go above mine and the highest I saw, briefly, was 2.7.
That doesn’t jive with my general understanding. Am I missing something?
