CLIMBING TIMES FOR THE 2003 ETAPE
Speeds and times for each of the cols in the 2003 Etape du Tour are given in the table below. They were calculated for the following weights of rider + bike:
175 lb. = 79.2Kg (e.g. 10 stone rider + 35 lb of bike + clothes etc.)
200 lb. = 90.5Kg (e.g. 12 stone rider + 32 lb of bike + clothes etc.)
225 lb. = 101.8Kg (e.g. 14 stone rider + 29 lb of bike + clothes etc.)
These are only examples – if you want to work out your own figures, climbing time is proportional to weight.
Power was calculated from the formula:
Power (Watts) = 2 x Weight(lb) x Speed(mph) x Gradient (as a fraction)
This formula is accurate enough at typical climbing speeds, though it does not allow for rolling resistance or wind resistance. Times are rounded to the nearest minute for clarity.
