If you talk to a track sprinter about cadence, he will call anything below 120 rpm low leg speed training, and that the high rev range starts at 150 rpm.
do you know why the best track sprinters go 150-160 RPM but the best road sprinters only 110-120? also road sprinters sprint out of the saddle while track guys only sprint out of the saddle the first 3-4 seconds of the acceleration and then go seated the rest.
optimal cadence is around 130 rpm. Some would suggest even lower. Most of the top track sprinters use a 102-110in gear.
Cavendish sprint speed Sprint speed: 48.47mph (78kph)
Taking a maximum output of 1600W, a cyclist could produce enough power to illuminate 107 energy-saving light bulbs at 15W each
"The perfect place to go really depends on the conditions. If you're talking an idealised stage, if everything has gone smoothly in a lead-out, if there's no corners, no wind, zero incline, same gradient… 230 metres, probably.
"It's about a 12-second effort that you want. If it's slightly downhill you'll go slightly earlier, if there's a slight headwind you'll go slightly later."
Normally from the last kilometre you put it in your biggest gear.
"Most guys do between 120 and 130 rpm. And that's where I'm different. I don't put out anywhere near the same amount of power that the other sprinters do.
"I'm doing 1400, 1500 watts, they're doing 1800, 1900 watts, which is a good 20% more. But I can pedal that much quicker. I can pedal with an extra 10% cadence. And that's the difference."
"It's exactly the same for us. Peak power really isn't a good measure. You might be able to do 1800 watts, bang, but if you drop to 1000 it won't matter.
"I can hold within 20% of my max power for 12 seconds. Mark Renshaw has an even lower peak power, but he can hold that 30 seconds to a minute, which is a different thing all together.
i can easily hold 200rpm for 15 or more seconds with light to moderate resistance. a
