im short and light and never win nowt, did the alp yesterday did ok too (best power figures to date); had one women go at a constant 4,7 w/kg, flat, up down didnt matter. was with her for a good part of the ride. plenty of the 100 mile a week strava riders too smashing up it at over 4 w/kg.
Your results look ok to me Kev!
Are you sure? NP=251 watts over 71 minutes while FTP=240 watts.

maybe a really bad accident at knee lvl??
Maybe just measured himself leaning over? :lol:
my results are decent enough but i will never win a race, if i get any better i will be A could be argued i should be A now especially if its a hilly event

Back to the height topic......
This guy is racing at 160cm, but his "Initial Height Check" is 183cm on the "Aliases" tab. From what I can see it looks like he changed it just prior to the KCL and left it there.

Also, it seemed that Sticky mentioned some triggers that will automatically DQ people for height doping, are they going to be retroactive? I hope so; weed out the filth from this platform.
A short suspension is in order.
ABSOLUTELY no way he is 160 cm / 5ft 3inch if you check his Strava photos and do a quick search, he is a USA Cat 1 rider. I'm sure that the 183 cm was correct to begin with...
exactly, this guys is clearly over 6' when you see his bike, seat height, and his skinny lanky body!!! why do half decent riders have to cheat at something online, that has no gold medal at the end... douchey!
I don't think I've been measured in 35 years. In the army, we walked by a measuring tape on the wall and some medical assistant just looked at it and said 5'10''. I don't think anybody was a 1/2 inch or 1/4 inch etc, just feet and a rough estimate of inches. I figured it was close enough have have used that ever since. I'll get measured this week.
I wonder how many riders just entered what they were "way back when"?
This is really an eye-opening topic isn't it....

I get that some riders have dubious power meters/turbos, but that's not necessarily their fault.

But to go and deliberately cheat on height etc is just bonkers... LOL.
