Calga times?

I know this is a hard question to answer as its all relative but trying to understand the times from the Calga TT and trying to gauge what a good time is for the 25km?

I've been looking at some of the times from people I know that I'm generally quicker than and kinda assumed I'd be able to beat their times or at least go close to them. They have done 42-43mins for the 25kms but now from what I've read that's actually a pretty fair time for the course on a roadie?

Am I looking at some kinda standardised times or actual times and what is a good time for a 1st attempt on a roadie?

40 for a roadie in a bad position? Not too bad. Depends what you are comparing with though.

If you are comparing with same position than fair enough . Compare with tt position and it's a different story

Have you done any TT's before? What do you think you can do for a flat 25? Low 40's is a decent time on a roadie for the Calga 25.
