To compare runners, we can normalize critical power by dividing CP by weight. If CP is 200 watts and weight is 50 kg, normalized CP is 4 Watts/kg. Achievable CP depends on several factors, including age. Below is a table* for comparison for people in their prime (about 30 years):
|Classification||CP in W/kg (men)||CP in W/kg (women)|
