Race Radio said:There was a light tailwind, 3 mph n/nw, which is normal for that area. Morning is a headwind but shifts to NW in afternoon......also those powermeters suck.
Just half that tailwind speed would see W/kg overestimated by ~ 0.12-0.15 W/kg on a 7% grade. All of it would overestimate by ~0.25W/kg.
That's a level of wind that would be barely perceptible, smoke still rises vertically but drifts with the air. Flags barely move.
It's a sponsorship deal.Race Radio said:Speaking of powermeters sucking how is it SKY uses Stages? I have heard nothing good about those things
I suspect they still use their SRMs in training.
