Default how fast do you need to be to race?

I looked up the results from a local cat 5 crit. Guy who won is in my club. I looked him up on strava. He recently did a 60 mile rally with a few rollers, averaged about 250 watts the whole way. I'm depressed. I could never do 250 watts for 60 miles.

I can now do 265 watts for 60 minutes straight on the trainer.

Crits are different. Are you asking how fast you need to be to win? You are fast enough to compete.

I would say 260-275 for 50 miles.

Depends on what level of racing I suppose.

This is the guy who won the local P123 race both Saturday and Sunday. Look at this power.
