Event warmup:

Rode about 5 miles to the event then the course.
  • 25m 7s
  • 10 miles
  • 23.89 mile/hr

Felt like I was lacking a bit of power during the middle of the course but overall it was a very good ride, especially after racing on Sunday.
My goal of the season was to do a sub 26min 10mile TT so to be so close to 25mins was really great.

I misjudged how close I was to the finish and started my all out effort too early so I had to back off a little then restart my sprint to the line.
What would you do differently?:

Didn't really get the hills right. I chose to stand on some of them but then my legs felt dead for a few seconds afterwards, costing me time. I think it would be better to just stay aero and spin up them - they are only very short.

Wait about 45 seconds longer before giving it absolutely everything to the line.

Warm down:

Rode back to the HQ then back home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My legs felt OK after racing on Sunday but I have not been sleeping well since then so I felt really tired today.

Event comments:

Nice friendly atmosphere with a wide range of abilities.
