I ride “B” races, and I do relatively good. But at the beginning of the race there are riders that go extremely fast for the first several minutes. I can keep up with them for the first minute or so at 380-400w, but not several minutes.
I have an old cycleops mag trainer, and Im not blaming it, but with the resistance knob at the bottom and the jerky movement, I feel that I could do better with a fluid trainer. It’s more or less the same thing at the end of the race: I start sprinting to the finish line at 400+w, but it’s never enough.
So my question is: will I do better with a fluid trainer of is it a figment of my imagination?
Im asking becuase I found a used cycleops fluid2 at a decent price, but I don’t want to buy unless I know it’ll make a difference.
I’m nor ready yet for a smart trainer, so that’s out of the question.
