Wow - that hurt. Today was my Individual Pursuit qualifier. I rode a PB, which is good but I was hoping for a better time.
Time was 3:47.770 - about 1/4 second faster than Sydney a fews weeks ago. I set out to ride a 3:45 schedule and was on bang on target at the 1km and 2km marks but the last km got me I'm afraid.
But here's the rub....
Average power: 420W - that's 35+W more than Sydney. I'll have to check the atmospheric conditions but that's a whole lot more power for not much extra speed. Yikes, no wonder I was crawling on the floor looking for somewhere to be sick after that.
Leading riders in my Div were doing low 3:30s. Wow.
World and Australian Masters champs were getting knocked off their perches everywhere today.
Anyway, for the record - here the pursuit file with three second smoothing applied. Click to see a larger version.
