Of course there is always exceptions to any rule but generally a 92-95kg rating weight isn't ideal.
Yeah and I was probably 20kg lighter than you when you won in shannonside and I couldn't hold your wheel at the finish.
I think youll be just fine

Brailsford giving it a go, but Mr Marginal Gains not understanding "Power Match"

And Ted King too apparently. They make a big deal of them not paying anyone to use the software, so no sponsored athletes like other options...

Depends on power smoothing, doesn't it, and I think the kickr is particularly known for that? He was using the turbo power, not his stages. Or maybe he has a really smooth pedal action.

Anyone using trainer road with an ant+ tablet? Currently using with a laptop and ant+ key but looking at changing my set up around. Have used with a bluetooth phone and the kickr and worked well but power meter is ant+ only so if I could get a tab with ant+ on it it would be great. From my quick search it seems like mainly samsung tabs that have it enabled.

i tried first time with my amazon fire last night. it picked up bluetooth no issue and power readings went through on trainer road from kickr. but there was no ant+ shwoing even though i'd downloaded the app. not sure why that was so please help techies. wasn't picking up cadence or speed it seemed as a result. didn't have my hrm with me so can't tell if that was missing too. i have basic knowledge of some vital cycling technological advance, apologies

I'm not 100% sure the amazon fire tablet has ant+, so you can download the app for it but the tablet itself doesn't have the ant+ receiver.

This is a list I found of tablets that have ant+ receivers in them. I think for most you would probably still need to install the app also. I'm not sure if this is a complete list but was all I could find.

Nearest I've done is a tablet (and phone) with Ant+ Dongle and an OTG cable. There's an Ant+ Tester App, which steps you through all the other installs your device needs.

If the hardware is built in then there are no issues using TR with ant+ on android. I've run it this way on an android phone before. That said Bluetooth is more reliable if you have that option available.

Anyone created the TrainerRoad ftp test on Training Peaks? Ive always used this format but loathe to pay a monthly fee for the test alone.

I've tried to create it but made a balls each time if someone has done this already.

Ramp, 20 or 8 minute test? I actually thought all were standard tests, and just with the ramp they have their own equation for giving the training FTP. My bolt has the 20 minute test on it as a standard workout - I gave up my training peaks sub, but I'm surprised it doesn't have an 8 or 20 minute test to the same protocol tbh.

20 min test.

I have a format from my coach but it's different to what I've used historically so trying to re create the format to sync with the garmin unit vua connect iq app.

I'll look around TP later, as you said surely one there to add to calender.

trainer road, zwift etc.. ant+ on an android tablet

i did it on a samsung phone with a micro usb adapter, one end micro usb into phone, the other end is normal size and takes the ant+ usb key.. then there are ant+ apps to be got off google play, if you just type in ant+ youl see them, i think theres 3 that are needed.. ant+ plugins service, ant+ plugin manager and ant radio service.. after all that it worked fine , cant see why the same wouldnt work on any android tablet,

micro usb adapter
