180.2km in 4:30 - 1 week to go!!!

Postby Troy C » Sat Nov 28, 2009 12:09 am

I am doing Ironman teams event in Busselton in a week.
I am Planning to go 4hr and 30 mins (40km avg)
So far this year I have done 41km State TT in 57min, 82km State TT in 1:58 and a week later did 160km state TT in 4:10
the 80k and 160k was the first TT at that distance
So at 1 week out, I feel more ready for this event than all these put together
We look to have a team to go 8:30 for the event
The coarse is one of the fastest IM in the world, apparently
Will do a 40km Hilly TT comp this weekend just to get focused
I now hope the puncture Gods are with me on the day and the support/crowd at the event inspire me to reach this goal
Will be doing it on a 5 year alloy Cervelo P3 with 90mm Pro-lites, skinsuit and areo helmet.
I plan to use 8-9 gels with 1solid bar and go thru 5-6 bottles (this could be depending on the pass out at aid stations)
with around 1400 competitors on a 60km bike lap. I also ned to stay out of trouble around corners and careful thought put in the overtaking/chase and keeping the right pace with drafting regs.
I will let you know on my and my teams progress / Result

Hope everything goes to plan and good luck next week. I'll be away but sure to check out the results as soon as they come in :)

BTW you may want to chuck a couple bananas in your back pocket to mix it up a bit!

Ok, Looking back Did OK
180.2k in 4:48, not what i was aiming for, but on hot day and a "unhelpful" winds
out of 110 team 99 finished
our team 9:14 ,2nd overall
I got 2nd fastest bike time and a time to put me into pro Ironman times for the day

A real hard day on the bike, great event to be apart of, but will go back to do the individual ironman one day!!!
