23:16 on P140 tonight. 23 secs slower than last time but it was very windy tonight, hopefully everyone else was slower as well but I don't get results until Fri.

That's bad, but well done on a 58 and getting within a minute of your course PB

But it's not as bad as when I had something pressed against my DI2 buttons on the drive down to a 50 and ran the power down....had to ride it single speed... Rolling Eyes

Couple of 10's coming up for me on THursday eve and Sat pm. Fast-ish courses, not E2/V718 quick but reasonable. One of them is probably E2 quick on the out and back but the 'turn' is a labyrinth of 4 roundabouts which blows any chance of a quick overall time.


Not thought about Etap TRO? at least the batteries are easily changeable if you have a spare? or maybe even old fashioned mechanical! Although Di2\Etap probably make it a fair bit easier to modify your cockpit.

I've got a 50 on Sunday, reasonably slow course though and I've had a cold most of the last week. Then a 25 the week after on the A19, first time I've done a DC course for a while so a bit nervous.

Also got confirmed for the National 100 today, anyone else in? Might be a bit far oop north for a lot of you though, but you can have a few days in the Lake District Smile

Also just confirmed for the National 100. Lost a couple of 100's down here (E2, B100/9) and can't make the other one in July (B100/4) so pushed the boat out. DRive up Sat, Travelodge Penrith, drive back after.

I expect rain.

Never been up there, told it's a reasonably quick single carriageway. Perfect day would see a sub 4: I'd need to go well on a decent day.

Anyway last night - first '10' for a while. Lost a lot of 10's on E2 so not done any really quick ones.

This was B10/3b - it's pretty quick on the DC (A11) - would be similar to E2 but all goes Pete Tong on the turn, which is a labyrinth of 4 roundabouts and the fact you have to slow for a roundabout on the course.

Time 21:28, going pretty well but really died in the last 3 miles. Schoolboy error - club mate started 2 minutes ahead and we'd had a little banter over the week as to whether I'd make the pass.....clocked him at the turn and thought 'this is on if I can find a few more watts'. Well I duly found those few extra watts for a mile or so, then popped and lost way more than any gained for the final 3 miles....

Stupid boy Pike...Rolling Eyes

It's probably the flattest 100 miles you'll find in the Lake Dristrict, don't know how well you know the area but it is basically a single lane trunk road between Keswick and Cockermouth, it's something like 3 laps. There's a few hills but nothing significant.

My first aim is to finish (alive), followed by not last, then anything under 4:45 would be nice but it partly depends on conditions on the day. Think I was around 4:35 last time at a nice steady pace, but I've barely done many rides longer than 60 miles for about 2 years. I've done a few long hilly rides but it's a bit different to a constant effort in an uncomfortable position for several hours!

I'm starting at 7:27, hopefully the weather will stay dry. Last time it was very hot.

Well, I did the 50 today and got round in 2:10:48, not as bad as it sounds, it's a slow course with about 350m of climbing and it was a bit breezy. Winner only did 1:49 and Phil Graves only managed 1:55. The winner has done short 19 for a 10, but probably on V718.

Was quite pleased, probably went off a bit sharp and suffered quite a lot in the last 15 miles, also didn't eat\drink enough which didn't help, I've suffered for the rest of the day. The 6k brick was not fun Sad was struggling with 4:40's but a good reminder of pacing and nutrition.

Onwards to Edinburgh 70.3, where I'll take it a bit steadier, also got a 25 on a fairly quick course next weekend.
