Performance Manager, Vasilis Anastopoulos, analyzes Marten’s winning performance:
“Marten produced almost 300 watts NP for the whole duration of the race, which is close to 4.3 watts per kilo and over the last 15 km, (around 20min) he was part of a 10 riders group that break clear of the group and he produced 360 NP (5.14w/kg) for this duration”.
“During the final sprint he hit 1400 watts max (20w/kg) and averaged 1161 watts (16.5 w/kg) for 13 seconds. Even thought that was the first race of the season for Marten, he still managed to produce some interesting numbers, displaying his good current physical condition. His peak power during the last sprint was one the best he has ever produced in a sprint during a race”.
