After my last A race about a month ago I was happy to see that my Garmin “spit out” a new FTP estimate based on the ride. It was about 11w higher than my previous (recorded) best so of course I changed my FTP on TR!
The race was a back country MTB course with some sustained climbs, however I don’t think any of the sustained climbs were over 10 minutes. Does anyone know what Garmin uses to calculate an FTP like this? I haven’t been doing a ton of structured workouts but the ones I have seem to be ok based on the new FTP. I feel like that FTP is pretty close and I’ll be checking it with an assessment next week.
