    For all that output, I would have chosen rye or whole wheat.

    This seems like a lot of work for a piece of toast. I cannot imagine how hard it would be to dark toast an English Muffin.

    That video has been circulating for a while. Pretty fascinating how much (or little) 700w is.

    With a geared bike and higher cadence he should actually have no problem doing it. André Greipel can hold an average in excess of 1,000W for 30 seconds. Chris Froome can average 414w for 41min. So holding 700w for 60sec shouldn't be that hard.

    But he didn’t churn butter for the toast. Slacker!

    As you point out, very few people on the planet can do what this rider did. I will throw Greipel, Boonen, Kittel, and Sagan in the mix. To generate 700+ watts at such a low cadence is herculean. Sprinters mentioned generate more power at 5 x's the cadence. Power is proportional to cadence. This guy in the 120-130 rpm range is a 2000+ watt rider. Track superstar. Genetics to apply massive force to the pedals from a dead start on a fixed gear.
