[Wired] For all you cycling fans out there who caught the Tour de France, Wired Magazine has an interesting article showing for the first time the average energy output that’s typically required of these riders. Floyd Landis, a former teammate of Lance Armstrong’s who now rides for the Swiss Phonak team, embarked on an experiment to calculate the wattage output of his riding. Over the course of the Tour, Landis averaged 232 watts of power when he was on the bike. But that was just his average; in a stage like the final time trial, where Landis finished sixth, he averaged 379 watts over 75 minutes. For the full article, see the following link.
