‘Feels Like’ Elevation for Time Trialists

‘Feels like’ Elevation allows you to mentally prepare for the event you have coming up. A huge part of racing is being prepared and knowing the course you are going to be riding.

With this graph and metric you will get a perspective on the effect the wind will have. This will give you a better and clearer image on how to pace yourself during a race so you don’t burn yourself out. Our graph allows you to visualise the wind, like you would the summit of a hill. Have a look at this event The S6/10 Tri-Logic Event time trial.

The headwind is very harsh and strong on this particular day and would make the downhill would ‘Feel Like’ an uphill effort. Find out more about ‘Feels Like’ Elevation graph and metrics.
