Fumiyuki Beppu, the most celebrated cyclist in Japan’s history, rides in the pro peloton for Trek/Segafredo. Zwift HQ recently shared a video of Fumy hitting the Watopia Hilly route hard for one lap, and the numbers are impressive!
Watch the video below, and check out the ride on Strava as well.
- Fumy makes 440 watts look way too easy.
- His lap time of 12:03 got him 41st place on Strava for the lap. Impressive ranking, considering this was a solo effort. (I’m currently in 1665th place with a time of 13:57, and I’m sure that was riding in a pack.)
- He averaged 443w for the lap, which works out to 6.42 w/kg since he weighs 69kg. Amazing.
- And again: he makes it look so easy. He doesn’t appear to be straining at all until a bit of effort at the end.
