Tried out the PT on the trainer in anger last night. 5 sec 1020W, so quite a way to go.

I only have a two up TT on Sat and I probably will be the stronger rider by a wee bit so not much need to do anything now...but as I need aero wheels / bars / seat post etc etc and my race bike could do with a new groupo for next year I will probably by a last years model Canyon or something similar...$$$$ .

Have thumbs pointing straight ahead (and the wrist/hand position that follows doing that), thumbs down or up is slightly less aero, although you may be constrained by what's comfortable and the available equipment.
I'd want to know the distance from centre of BB to end of extensions to ensure it's legal, or if beyond 75cm, that it's no more than 80cm and your elbow angle is < 120 degrees. Having the slightly upwards facing forearems actually helps that a bit. ear-elbow position looks OK.
