Re: Calga TT

Had my second go at Calga 43km TT course on Sunday. I was hoping to knock off 5 minutes from my 1:27 down to 1:22.

I thought getting into the teens would be great but unlikely. I knew I had to finish with an average speed of 32 something km/h. On the way out I was at 30.4 or so. It's faster on the way back but I thought 32 was out of the question. Well my average speed was rising and rising and I got to 31.5 with 10km to go. Then I hit 32.4. I was at 41.5km with my clock at 1:18. Go go go go! Time ticks to 1:19 and I am at 42.4km and no finish line in sight. Where the hell it is....oh here it is. Hahahaha.

1:19:24

Really enjoyed competing on the bike, even if it was only against myself and my own goals.

Congrats on cracking the 1:20 barrier
If the R-1 rule is broken, what happens to N+1?

Thanks! :)

I have a feeling cracking 1:10 will be a lot harder :wink:

Indeed. It might require some cycling specific training.

Hope to see you there next month.

I am going to assume you're talking to me :)
Thanks.


Looking at my schedule, I might not be able to attend Calga again (and get my free entry) until February :(
