- For each climb, there is a reference time, similar to the median time now. The reference time is the average of the adjusted times for riders doing the climb.
- For each rider, there is a time adjustment factor. The time adjustment factor is the average of the ratio of the rider's time for a week to that week's reference time. So if a rider always does a climb 10% over that climb's reference time, that rider's adjustment factor will be 1.1.
Do any of your w/kg prediction models take rolling resistance into account? Teams that pay higher attention to such things will be seeing faster climbing speeds for the same power but as your models look at speed would this will be interpreted as a higher w/kg prediction rather than getting more "bang for buck" from the same power?
