Why is this not a breakthrough

Disregard, I failed attaching the photo!


Hi Paul, congrats on a great effort, riding near MPA is quite challenging! Although you were right around MPA for a few seconds, it wasn’t quite enough to trigger a breakthrough. Any changes to the fitness signature would have likely been +/- a few watts and maybe 0.1-0.2 kJ HIE.

I’m a little confused, it is my understanding the 5 sec power is the time metric for triggering the breakthrough?

The way the system sees a breakthrough is whether one of your parameters go up after extraction. It’d be a shame to get a breakthrough and then see all your numbers go down! So we don’t look at the individual MPA values but at the final extracted signature for consistency purposes.

Thanks for the clarification!
