A 75 Kg. triathlete with a threshold (think maximum sustainable power for an "all-out" hour TT) power of 300W could ride the bike segment of Ironman Lake Placid at a normalized power (think weighted average power) of 240W. At this effort, "staying legal" and possessing average aerodynamics (whatever that means), he'll likely ride about 5:30. What he should hold is much closer to 220W, though. This will add about 5 minutes to his bike time...and likely save him 25-30' on the run.
“My performance in Liege is unknown”
Alberto Contador did today with his Astana teammates the recognition of the last 80 km of the Liege-Bastogne-Liege route, on a sunny day and spring temperatures, between 15 and 20 degrees. After training, Contador hold a press conference before the race where he gave his impressions of this great Classic.
What do you expect about your performance next Sunday?
I do not know, is a bit unknown. My aim is to gain experience, because to try to win here requires more experience and know better more the course. I'm uncertain.
