I'm lucky and right behind you but totally agree. I'll be swimming over a ton of people in the first group. And this hurts the slower swimmers just as much as the fast.

Is there anyone who biked fast that would be willing to share metrics? Or anyone who could confirm my suspicion? I forgot to calibrate my power meter the whole week being down at the race and I suspect my power was off. Below are my metrics, I am suspecting a low reading because BBS race analyzer is telling me I had a CdA of .2018 which is way off than anything it gave me before (usually .23-245 range) and I'm pretty sure is close to world-class CdA, which if you saw my turtling head you would know is not possible...

Power meter: Stages single left crank (perhaps the problem right off the bat?)
NP=232 / Avg=222
Weight=77kg
Time: 2:23:40
Distance 89.6km

Last time I did this race, I had an NP of 203 with a time of 2:42 and change with a different helmet and wheelset. I guess I am having a hard time believing that 30 watts makes that much of a difference.

I wouldn't consider it fast but here are my metrics. I imagine my CdA is not the best so might be possible your numbers are correct. Also I got a bit long on the distance which messes the numbers up a little.

Power Meter: Garmin Vector 3
NP: 230
AVG: 221
Weight: 72.5kg
Time: 2:30
Distance: 91.6km

Thanks! pretty similar stats to mine, save my extra beer weight but given that, I have to think I am low by a bit. Granted it is n=1 but it certainly felt harder than 232

Smokin! congrats on the AG win. Interesting as you seem to have a similar position to me (same bike too!). Sure there are many differences of course but it does make me lean back towards trusting my power reading.
