Road Bike Watts - Leading vs Following Wheels.

Recommended Posts


Race Bike Tactics

Don't work for free, don't make pointless attacks, find the right place in the peloton. That's the conclusion of my latest video, which presents a huge difference in the power output and the heart rate when leading the pack vs. following wheels.


Workout Break Down

I used my Favero Assioma power meter + Sigma ROX 12.0 bike computer. There was a slight hill, which you can see on the overlay of the video below.


3 minutes at 25 km/h leading (15,5 mph) - avg HR 116 bpm, avg power 127 W
3 minutes at 25 km/h following - avg HR 108 bpm, avg power 77 W
3 minutes at 30 km/h leading (18,6 mph) - avg HR 136 bpm, avg power 229 W
3 minutes at 30 km/h following - avg HR 123 bpm, avg power 117 W
3 minutes at 35 km/h leading (22 mph) - avg HR 156 bpm, avg power 304 W
3 minutes at 35 km/h following - avg HR 138 bpm, avg power 206 W
