The way of racing here is not like racing in reality. It calculates the speed based on the force of the pedal divided by the athlete’s weight, giving a parameter. Therefore, athletes who are lighter weight will have an advantage. I have a lot of VR experience so I know what my average pedal wattage is. From there on to the game, look at the watts I maintain the pedal power. But I’m not used to seeing the speed index but changing the pedal force a lot, when riding a pass will not be effective ”.

The two Domesco Dong Thap riders finished first and second in today’s race.
Minh Tri’s answer partly also answered the question why the “god of the mountain” Le Ngoc Son showed great effort, standing on the pedals and spinning his legs quickly, but still did not achieve good parameters. on the pass though he is an expert in outdoor climbing. Because it has a difference.
