Why you forgetting my team mate Smile sub 20 on that course is great going.

26:25 for you even with a road bike suggests not that fast a day though, even for a saturday afternoon event.

Might try and get out for one of the evening 10's.

Cheers for the update Jim. Had to leave early doors before finding out there were joint first winners. I was very heavy legged yesterday and had a fair few miles in them. I just don't recover as quickly as I used to.

Just updating....

Maybank is flying; I think there's a whole bunch of them at the pointy end that have upped their games this year. Nationals are going to be ferocious.

Classic error there Wheezy the old fiddle with bike on the morning of a TT....rarely ends well....next time...

A gusty club 10 on the Q10/19 this morning, but a 1 second PB so worth including! Faster this year on a slower day, off slightly less power too. Shows the new position is good.

Sadly ballsed up my route and missed the sign up sheet, so couldn't contribute for my club.

Nice to meet TriSam, great performance by the way, and agree definitely some bluster and gusts out there.

Did ride the course though unofficial, some terror getting on the A21 with HGVs lining up on me both times, and would've been a 1:15 improvement on my PB. Average power, normalised power and cadence all in the right ball park too.

I'm a bit late coming into this season, but I've started off ok on the bike.
Up here in Ayrshire, i've put a decent time in so far 23:06 but it was very windy. I'm hoping it will improve once the wind drops and I can pop the disk on!
I'm doing a local 25m TT tomorrow but with around 1400ft of climbing, it won't be super fast.

Crikey that is epic climbing for a 25. Hope the descents are fast....

Think you'll all enjoy my epic blundering on Sunday. 50 TT - I remember thinking 'must charge the DI2' on Saturday. Needless to say sorted everything, charged my rear light but forgot the Di2.....

Trundled down to the start and realised I could not change gears...

Thought of sacking but then I'd have to do a long ride anyway, so did the TT single gear. Immensely frustrating on the fast bits to not be able to get on the gear, and thus power about 25w down on target.

Still a solid 2 hour tempo ride in the bank. Time was 2:05:40, and a harsh lesson learned.

There's something to be said with old fashioned cables! Which 50 were you doing TRO? I did the Charlottville 50 yesterday. A bit disappointed with how it went on reflection, but it was my first long TT in a while.

I did Charlotteville as well. Some proper fast rides looking at the results.

Forgotten how much I hate that bumpy stretch of road, had flashbacks to my 12 hour.

Proper nasty accident as well, think 2 riders involved not sure if they touched or a car took them out. Hope they're ok, saw one get loaded onto a stretcher. Not good. Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

Just did some AeroLab analysis of my file from the weekend, looks like my CdA is now under 0.2 for the first time! Chuffed Very Happy

Well, i did my tri club 25m TT last Sunday and clocked 1:04:57 and took the Strava leaderboard pole position for the route, in the process (calm winds but just under 1400ft of climbing). Averaged 23mph so pleased with that.
Having tweaked my lower back earlier today, I'm not sure I'll do the cycle club 10 tomorrow….perhaps! I've done 23mins (15-20mph winds) on it but yet to pull out the aero lid and disc yet. I'm waiting for a skin suit.
Ultimately, I'd love to crack 21:30 this season but as this is the first year i've done any TT specific races, i'm not sure if this may be unrealistic - any thoughts out there?
Thank you.

For a comparison, last year on a fairly good night on a relatively slow course I rode a 22:47. A couple of weeks later on a fast course but a relatively slow day I rode a 21:58. I'd say that with the lid/ disc / good skin suit a sub 22 is definitely within your reach. If you have a power meter, are you able to do some testing to see if you can improve your body position and reduce drag while keeping your power output up? Keep a pathological eye on the weather forecast and hope for a float night, which we had here yesterday evening. That will help too. Smile

Great advice, thank you. I broke 23 last night by a few seconds but the conditions weren't great and I was 3rd fastest and only 25 seconds off the fastest guy who usually is sub 22, so i'm really happy with the progress.
Problem with this timetrailling, is my focus is moving away from running and swimming……

Sopworth I know what you mean! I keep thinking if I dedicate more time to TTing then I wonder how could I get. At the moment i use my TTs as threshold sessions and finally edging towards low 22's on crappy Scottish roads.
