    Well that was annoying - had formed a group of 3 out front at halfway with Bill and Aleman, Rod chasing just behind. Then my chain came off at the surprise 7%, followed by BSIM loosing signal and what seemed to be putting me back on a different course! :cursing:

    hallway was the location of choice today, thankfully not much there to cause too much harm. She's been pampered today so feeling better now :okay:

    Great ride @BILL S Thought @Aleman might stay with you, but as his HR started to skyrocket I could see he was on the edge. Bit peeved I didn't jon you guys in the end, looked like a nice fast course :okay: @Rod McG looked really strong too tonight :thumbsup:

    Was really trying hard, but once the HR hit 190 I knew I was cooked, I knew that last 5Km was going to be hard, and I just couldn't get the HR to drop back to a sensible figure ... I really needed a 1% incline for the last Km to bring @BILL S back ... Or @peterob to have appeared back :sad:

    Well done @BILL S

    Got a new FTP (and a lot more sensible than the last BKool assisted one :smile: )

    tumble not too bad .... certainly not as dramatic as Bob's fall off his bike in IoW :biggrin: Problem was she was then stuck on the floor and couldn't get up so I had to get home to right her.. A Weeble she is not :wacko:

    Not so strong on the second half, legs gave up! It seemed like a long way! Plenty ghosts for you, @Whorty!

    I could see you working so hard. Bill was pushing 375 watts, and you was sucking his wheel at 280 watts with HR at 191. I could see as soon as you lost his wheel you'd struggle to get back on again. Great ride though, and big :okay: for trying to stay with Bill on a flat course

    Thanks Carl. It was like the good old days when I could actually make some decent power. Not sure if I got a bk super power or if it were just that it was flat. I also wondered if Aleman would have a surprise for me near the end but it didn't happen. But yes, good fast course with plenty chance to draft. hopefully you can make it on Saturday.

    edit: Thanks for the messages :smile:

    Yeah - we were working well together to bridge up to Bill and Rod at halfway - If we'd kept that up we may have stuck with Bill! :smile:

    Well done Bill - I dipped back in as a spectator and saw you produce a strong finish ^_^
