    My guess is that it would "assist" on the uphill portions of a course....lowering the amount of resistance on the pedals for the rider. That said, keeping it at a speed matching the rider's speed would be a bit of a challenge I think.

    That is just a guess though...I am not a biker either.

    I don't think you guys are realizing how "weak" the human body is in this regard. If what I have heard is correct only a advantage of 40-60 watts was given. Again, less than what is required to light a lightbulb.
