It's take dedication, hard work and a lot of mental strength, an area in which I lack. Also I don't have a great deal of endurance, which is where the hard work and dedication comes into it. I get popped on most sustained climbs and I just don't train consistently enough not to get dropped. I bought the power meter with the vision of doing just that. Anyways here is my power curve, as you can see it teeters off dramatically after about 1 minute (720).
Are you sure your SRM is properly calibrated? Your power curve is a sprinter's curve but even so your 20 minute and 1 hour power are still very impressive - tooo impressive for C Grade I would have thought? Your FTP looks like its about 4.3 W/Kg which is really A grade level.
Edit: Just read all of the posts above (should have done that before posting) some of which say much the same - worth checking the calibration again though.
