Pro Cyclist FTP

Pro Cyclist FTP – UPDATED 2021 – Coggan Power Chart

Ever wondered what FTP top cyclists have? Even though many professionals keep this number secret, some athletes keep a more open approach and publish their data online. Because of this, you are now able to get a sneak peek into how much power a professional cyclist produces.

Pro Cyclist FTP – What FTP Do Pros Have?

With the popularity of power meter training and the data available, it’s easier than ever to compare your FTP against a pro cyclist FTP. You may be wondering how you would stack up and whether you would be able to complete a professional bike race without being dropped.

With tools like Trainingpeaks, Strava, and Zwift, you are now able to get a complete view of how much power the professionals produce.

While we can’t 100% confirm these figures are 100% correct (collected from numerous sources), it does give you an insight into what a pro cyclist FTP is.

As you see from the table above, there is one common thing with all the riders, and that is their power to weight ratio. This is what makes a professional cyclist stand out over an amateur cyclist.

While there are some high FTP numbers in there, some of them aren’t much better than a top amateur’s power. But once you combine the weight of a pro cyclist and their FTP, then stuff starts to get interesting.

One of the highest FTP ever recorded was that of Bradley Wiggin’s during Paris Nice 2011, although this hasn’t been 100% confirmed this showed that his FTP was at least 456w with a power to weight ratio of 6.6w/kg.

Coggan Power Chart

If you are a long-time user of power then you have probably heard of the Coggan power chart. This chart is built on providing the cyclist a detailed power profile that can help the cyclist learn more about their abilities. This power chart provides four important values useful to a cyclist. This includes sprinting ability (5secs), anaerobic capacity (60secs), v02max (5 minutes), and FTP (20mins).

These numbers are then divided by the rider’s weight and give you an estimated benchmark of talent. You can then use these figures to adjust your current training, and to improve your power over these measured duration periods.

You can find more information in the book Training & Racing with a Power Meter and detailed information about the Coggan power Chart.
