Seems like much learned this journey. However, controllers have been swapped creating a different engine dynamic, and ratio of engine support has been moved up word such that it is more like a bicycle with James + 40 lb rather than 90 lb.
Be that as it may. More testing in coming days.
For the first third of the journey the human wats per hour were the best in maybe a year. 150 and it did not seem to be extremely exhausting. Because of the richer motor ratio the cadence was probably 62 instead of 40.
But maybe the primary factor was that more than ever two elements were combined, conventional bicycle rotated backward, therefore extending the knees to the full down position, coupled with the notion of digging.
Now entering the final 25% of the journey, the notion of digging is mature ring, the target of the knees for full extension has moved down to possibly 30° a more aggressive digging. With a very fatigued body this is increasing sustainability and power. Nice.
This last 20% a sharpness to the digging that is very appropriate, a slight chop. Seems to be enabling with that targeting 30°, lower, on the steeper climbs.
