When I got back from our easy, but quite hilly (Mt. Eden, Pierce, 9, Skyline, Page Mill), training ride today, I went to see how many kCals I earned for dinner. To my surprise, the wattage display had been maxed out at 1999. When I downloaded the data, it said my 5 second power was 2,750.
Now, I'm no featherweight, but that's still like a gazillion watts per kg. This 5 second spike allegedly happened somewhere between 9 and Page Mill on Skyline. I'm thinking the PowerTap had a brief moment of insanity. But, if it didn't, then you ladies will have to watch out at the critters this season! ;)
