The climb does finish at the cattlestop

The datum point for the finish was taken from the old (incorrect) MMR trace, because I don't have many traces for that ride myself, funny that.

The correct point is 172.6241,-43.66611 or can somebody give me a definitive point. It is where the road just crosses into the tree line. I have updated the point and if you re-upload you GPX it will pick up you're correct time.

Sorry for the inconvenience I hope you didn't loose TOO much sleep over it all :blush:

We got up Maj A last night with new season bests.
My 17kg commuter really struggles up that climb. Teresa disappeared up the hill far to quickly.

Managed to take a detour on the way home from work and get a time in for Dyers-Worselys.
To be honest I don't think I will take the commuter down Flying Nun again; had a few eyeball issues in the bumpier sections...

Ha! Just checked, I'm only 20sec quicker down Nun on the 29er. :paranoid:
Suspension, pah!

Turned the boat racing on this morning to see what all the fuss is about, then realised it's boring and went for a ride instead...

It was a bit too much of a head wind to go for a good time up the Bastard & my legs weren't feeling great but at least quicker than my last ride up there. Now off to somewhere hot & sunny for the next couple of weeks :D

Tested the 45second theory MFW on Dyers this morning - and failed miserably. Legs of lead today, but a time on the board. Is about 3mins slower than what I did a couple of years back. A lotta work to do!

Bloody Metservice forecast - they said no rain till afternoon. It was warm enough, but was a bit damp by the time I got home!

Cheers Rik,
That made quite a difference with the correct coords when I reloaded my GPX file - that's the easiest 90 sec I've ever lost... :sly:

Finally had the chance to go out to my old favourite. Beautiful day for the b*stard. Very still out there. Lyttleton harbour looking beautiful. Can put the road bike away until next year now ;)

Thought this topic would be a good way to get fit, then I could go back to MTB. But now I saw where I am on the board I start to feel all competitive!

Actually looking at the total time I think I might be 7 seconds ahead of the leader!? Anomaly of the %age calculations I guess. And I was wondering how the power calculations are done. Surely there must be a lot of assumptions? Like rider weight?

Yes anyway, my competitive spirit is telling me to redo some of my weaker climbs. Like Worseley's or something. Wonder when XCguy is going to smash out a few more climbs...?

Sorry my bad got too excited and didn't read the times closely enough.

but yes the calculations are performed against the climb average. So you can be ahead on time and behind on average. Whatever you are competitive.

Power Calc:
They power use the standard calcs (very close to those used by Strava) for work uphill, rolling resistance and wind resistance. They make a lot of assumptions on the variables in the equations, but the biggest variable is your weight.

You should never ask a lady her age or weight so we make assumptions about weights for males and females(if you tell us your sex). Or you can put in your own weight, all in the profile tab in your User Control Panel if you want a more accurate calculation.

Ha ha wow!

Just entered my combined rider + bike weight of 65.6kg and my estimated power outputs all dropped by about 100W !

Just goes to show that my only real advantage is being a featherweight!
