Get a feel for what Gustav's race felt like to him by viewing his SRM power meter race file in TrainingPeaks' File Viewer (pictured). The all-new File Viewer has a lot of great new features, but some may be a little hard to find so take a minute and visit TrainingPeaks Support to read about all the new features.
Additionally, if you'd like to download Gustav's power file and analyze it yourself in WKO+, download the original file here. Please note that Gustav’s SRM zero-offset may need to be calibrated since his watts never go to absolute zero when he is coasting. We hope to have this taken care of for tomorrow’s stage.
