    PB'd on my club course last night with a 22:23. Strangely lower power (304w) than previous best (313w), but I imagine either conditions were more benevolent or I somehow made up for the lack of power by riding smarter. I like to think it is the latter, but I am sure it was the former.

    Either way, that's 19s off my best for that course and a time I am pretty pleased with, especially considering that it is not a fast course.

    Managed to beat my age std by 1 second tonight. It seems to get harder each year to achieve. Was the penultimate 10 this year, so pleased with the result. It was a good night. Tail wind to the turn which is mostly up hill and not too hard on the way back.

    It's a very good method of comparing your own performance year by year and allows for gradual slowing down with age. Shouldn't take too much notice of the standard itself, as this has been derived from performances all over the UK. One rider in our club is an ex pro and he beats his standard by 5 minutes on a 10 mile TT. But knowing your own plus or minus against the standard and achieving this each year is a really good way of motivating yourself and judging your fitness.

    It appears that I am ahead of the 40km, 60 yr old standard by 9 minutes 46 seconds

  10. PB'd the hilly Husbands Bosworth TT by a minute today (a 25.43). I think there's room to improve that. I had to sit up for an oncoming muppet deciding to OT a caravan (its ok its only a cyclist,he's only traveling 33mph :rolleyes:) eventually he got the message and pulled in. Every twist/dip/bend seemed to be busy with traffic after that. Then the doh moment, unloaded for a sprint to the flag, only to look down and see there was half a mile to go, it was a windsock not the finish 1f602.png

    I've decided after a two year sebatical, it's time to re-enter the time trial pain cave. So over the winter months I'll be building up a new rig and trying to break the 25min barrier..............
