Normalized power on hard rides can indeed exceed your FTP. But if I were you, I'd look more closely at your 5-20 minute power during that ride instead. If your 20 minute power is significantly higher than your FTP, then you should retest your FTP. For outside rides, anything longer than 30-minute power is not reflective of my capabilities, though, because you have to contend with things like traffic, traffic lights and other things.This mornings 2 hour ride, I had an NP of 12watts over my ftp. Last weeks Tuesday spin the NP was right at FTP for the two hours. I guess it's the steep hills that require large watts that mess with the numbers. Same PM. Always nice to smash the formula.
