Otherwise, use the directions below.
If you want to perform aerodynamic analysis, the bare minimum you can use is any device that records GPS tracks. This will allow you to perform GPS coast down analysis, which can be relatively accurate for long descents where you can get accurate base map data from your favourite cycling app. For example, a long descent recorded to Strava and then elevation corrected using the Strava funtionality can yield decent results for CdA and Crr.
If you have a GPS head unit that can record laps, you can perform tabular lap analysis.
For more accurate analysis results but still using GPS, you will need a power meter on your bike. This allows you to perform GPS Virtual Time and GPS Virtual elevation analysis.
For the most accurate results, you want a power meter and a well calibrated speed sensor on your bike. This allows you to perform Virtual Elevation testing using speed and power data, which is the gold standard.
If you want to export race plans to a trainer app, you can export using the ZWO, MRC or ERG file format options and use your normal trainer setup for Zwift or other apps that support MRC and ERG files.
If you want to use race plans on a real route, you can either use a head unit that supports the GPX file format with waypoint notifications, or you can use a Garmin head unit that supports TCX courses with coursepoint notifications.
