Carbon frame with internal cabling has been purchased............
@Cuchilo just need rear mech and aerobars and a base training rig will be built........then in the near year hopefully a zipp 900 for the rear
Just for winter/turbo set-up im going to use pro-lite Gavia wheelset and a 1x10 set-up with 48t upfront and 11/28 rear
I set a PB for a random distance that nobody else has probably bothered about last night. 12.541 miles. Probably a world record.
Possibly beaten by hundreds of thousands who have ridden TTs longer than 12.541 miles.
It's just marmion being a dick as usual.......one day he'll grow up and realise he's more the side of 60 than 16
Or maybe one day he'll attempt a TT rather than sit on his couch eating chips and criticising others
I got an over all 10 miles PB today in pretty shocking conditions (as is the norm theses days ) of 26s and a course pb of 45s a 24.18 at Brogborough. Or was it, I got lost on the way to the start and thought thats ok following riders would put me on the right path (not realising there'd been a plethora of DNS's) so I missed my start slot. I'd thought I got away with it as the pusher off decided I could easily slot into one of the DNS places. When I got back to HQ I found out I was wrong though and had a 2mins penalty. Mental note: next time give my self 20+mins and not 18mins
Rode my TT bike 100 miles solo in one of the local Fondos on Sunday. Including all stops, time was 4:51:55. On the bike ride time was 4:44 so around eight minutes in breaks ( I need them at my age LOL ). Started cramping with around 15 miles to go so that slowed me down toward the end but overall pretty pleased with going under five hours.
I went out to Bungay to fly the PCC flag on the B10/43 Wortwell/Bungay TT today. I had previously done a 25.20 on that course before but that was on my old converted road bike and I was confident of a sub 25mins. That had been my target for the season and I'd beat it 4 times before. Went a wee bit better than that and despite being down 15 watts or more I did a sub 24 (23.57) a pb by 21s if my Brogborough time had stood (Officially a 47s PB) https://connect.garmin.com/modern/activity/2021591662…
The magic 25mph smashed. Well done.
I'm a wee bit bored today (I let a tiny barking cough make me stay in rather than getting cold and wet). Anyway as a result I went on the rollers for the first longer session in a while and whilst I didn't set out to do a roller 10 miles TT (actual 10 inches) I broke my pb for that in both sessions, the second being fasted a 19:47 which includes a 5mins Z 1 recovery in the middle of two efforts.
Got a PB on the Eglington course in Irvine, Scotland at the Icebreaker: 23:04. It was a 2up though... hoping to break 25m solo this year.
It was the first of the evening 10 series last night. After a winter of not much riding, bad weather and coughs & colds, it was such a good feeling to realise that I could knock out a sub evens ride again and only 25 secs short of my age std. Now a nice long season of TT's to look forward to and a mere 51 years since my avatar pic was taken.
Good luck to all riding TT's this year and hope you all get PB's.
every year I say i'm going to come and have a go.
Is it just turn up and ride or do I need to book a spot?
If it's anything like our club TTs, you just turn up. Start times are allocated at signing on, on a first-come first-served basis, so if you want a good choice of slots, get there early. They usually send the younger/slower riders off first and save the fast boys for last - mainly for the benefit of the marshals.
