There seems to be some confusion about the four records of Richard, Slaats, Archambaud and Coppi. I am using the values from the Brügelmann-Radsport catalogue. The same values for Archambaud and Coppi can be found also on the Milano-Vigorelli homepage. For Richard, Slaats, Archambaud the values are the same on both websites, but for Coppi […]

It is well known that the air density decreases with an increase in altitude, which reduces the aerodynamic drag but also reduces the athletes power output. r = 1.225 – (PB / 760) – (288.15/T) The pressure PB follows the well known „barometric altitude equation“: PB=exp(6.63268-0.112 – H – 0.00149 – H2 where PB is […]
