On a recent thread @Nate indicated that the long-term plan is to only have to ramp test once:
Maybe I’m a little unhinged, but I actually quite enjoy a good ramp test. I think I’d still do a ramp test after every plan, even if the ramp test was taken out of the plans. As the ramp test conditions are so repeatable it gives me a real good gauge of where my cycling fitness is at. My local 10 mile TT is a pretty good test, but that will always be slightly affected by weather/traffic etc…
So, a quick poll… would you continue to ramp test if you didn’t need to?
- Yes, I’d continue to ramp test
- No way would I ramp test if I didn’t need to
