Does anyone know any info about the average watts of 1000m sprints on a track by the pros?

If you download the SRM software (free) there is an example of a kilo TT. IIRC its >1100W

Peak power (for international level elite rider) at the start could be like 1800W and 400W at the finish line. Average power could be somethin like 750W.

just over 11 and just under 12 w/kg for 1 min is pretty good for these guys.

Thanks for the input guys! I just figured out i can do 1000 watt average for 30 sec. And after reading the book 'Racing and training with Powermeter' it sounded that i did pretty good considering im just a weekend warrior...

We can all do 1000W for 30s; the defining factor for a great Kilo ride is what happens after 45s, when nearly everybody is dying on their arse. Kilo competitions are won, and more often lost, in lap 4.

OK, 1kW might be a bit high, but the point stands; if 30s power was any guide to kilo performance, the top ten in the World Championship would all have done 1:00.xxx (and the top ten would have been different people, in a different order) A field which is separated by a couple of tenths after two laps suddenly gets spread over 2 seconds when the crucial second half comes into play. Just taking 2 established sprinters (i.e. ignoring the unusually paced rides of Mini Phinney and a few other less experienced riders)

500m 1000m
NIMKE  32.068 1:00.666
PERVIS 32.230  1:02.976

I would also say that 1000w for 30 sec is a bit high.

But you are right, the second half of the kilo is where it all matters.

When still racing in LA crit scene and the LA velodrome:
Peak: 1800+ (Garmin said 2100, but after cutting spikes it was a bit over 1800 3 to 4 seconds)
1000 Watt: 30 seconds pretty much exact.
800 Watt: 52 seconds (I trained to reach 1 minute here)
600 Watt: 1:52

Now can do maybe 70% 😂😂
