    Good evening,
    I’ll keep it short. I’m looking to do the Pisgah 5 day stage race in April. I’m trying to up the training as the time draw near, likely this winter. My question is, should I get a power meter or a smart trainer to make my training more effective. I’m obviously looking at the stage racing plans. I just wanted to see what everyone’s thought are on this or if people had pros and cons of each. Thanks!

    Get both! If only 1 is possible get a power meter. You can use power data indoors and outdoors with a power meter. Pisgah is a rugged tech outdoor event.
