Dazzling knowledge Frederic Funk: ‘In the long run, it’s velocity that counts, not energy’

Final weekend Frederic Funk completed third at The Championship and, as anticipated, the German grew to become the quickest biker of the day. He accomplished the 87.6 kilometers on the bike in a time of 1:51:13 and that produced dazzling knowledge.

To start with, his time equates to a median velocity of 47.3 kilometers per hour. In complete, Funk pedaled 312 watts on common, 320 watts Normalized Energy. He did so at a median rotational velocity of 81 per minute, and his coronary heart charge averaged 162. As well as, Funk – who at all times offers full disclosure of his values after a race – jokes concerning the 29 altimeters on the course. “We truly needed to cross a bridge two instances.”

Remarkably, Funk remains to be not absolutely happy together with his efficiency on the bike. “I do know I can do even higher than this however I used to be already combating my again 10 kilometer into the race, in order that energy was lacking within the legs. One thing I would like to determine and work on. I’m very pleased with the facility to hurry ratio although, as a result of in the long run the velocity counts and never the facility.”
