If two riders of different build
- rider 1 - shorter, lighter, thinner
- rider 2 - taller, heavier, stockier
Are riding a rolling terrain. No notable climbs. A few short climbs lasting no more than a couple of minutes maximum - but otherwise a flat to undulating terrain.
Both riders having the exact same power-to-weight. And apply their power in equal measure ie. same.
- rider 1 - 60kg - 270 watts 4.5watts/kg FTP
- rider 2 - 80kg - 360 watts 4.5watts/kg FTP
Is rider 2 actually faster than rider 1? (because he is applying his 360watts on flattish terrain)
