Title Robust computation of minimum-time pacing strategies on realistic road cycling tracks
Abstract In a previous publication (Dahmen, 2012) we compared minimum-time pacing strategies for road cycling time trials for two endurance models: the 3- parameter critical power model (Morton, 1996) and an exertion model by Gordon (2005). For the former model, the problem is singular and only an approximate regularized solution for a synthetic continuously varying slope profile was computed. In this contribution, we improve the numerical methods to compute strategies on realistic tracks with complex height profiles
