Is All Power Equal ?

Just been reading a really interesting article about the power requirements of a time trialist compared with a climber. Obviously body mass must come into the equation but it seems it’s not quite that simple. I wonder where the requirements of cyclocross fit in to the mix? A muddy race needs almost constant power to keep the bike moving (to stop it decelerating). However a dry race can include parts which feel more like a time trial with a few ups and downs thrown in. Food for thought and clearly we are all predetermined to be able to do one thing or another. Or not ? Lol

Look what I found at one of my favourite cross training venues!  It won’t last for long, as soon as the Autumn rain makes an unwelcome appearance. All adds to the joy of Hanchurch Woods, just off the M6 at Junction 15. Roots, single track, banks to run up and a bit of technical downhill. Want more can a girl want?

Pick it up and run!
