Club Rave 20km TT, March 20th, 10am. (UPDATED WITH ROUTE)

Great turnout today for the seasons first training race!
There was a lot of old faces and new faces some cranky faces and definitely many pain faces, all around good times today (hopefully;). Lachlan took the win with his win(d) cheating machine and some massive sustained watts. Thanks to the volunteers for recording times. Where's those results Dennis? ;)

Guys, it's time to get used to going hard either on your road bike or your TT machine.

Meet at here at 10am on Sat. morning and we'll go out and ride two loops of the 6.8km circuit as warm up, then race 3 loops for 20km. We'll start out at 30second intervals and try to seed us slowest to fastest to get the most out of the race prep for everyone. Everyone welcome, this is a contained workout so there is no chance of getting dropped or having people have to wait for you.

Take this opportunity to add some speed to your season prep. If you have time, then the group can head out for a nice ride after the 20km hard, but I'll let someone else post that.

Any club welcome, but must be an ABA member.

Here is the course, is is really safe because of the tiny amount of traffic and no roads inside the loop !

NOTE: If you want to come early for a coffee, I'll have lots on.

Great idea Trev. I can't make it this Saturday but this is exactly what I need to push me.

I'll be there. Are we going aero or Merckx for this one?

Trev said...

I am bringing my TT bike, but no aero equipment. But if you want practice with your aero stuff, that is totally fine.

Do you have any idea what the loop will be.

Darcy G said...

I challenge all cat 5s to do the race Merckx style. That includes you, Woolley...

Trev said...

Scott, it's a RAVE !! In an undisclosed location and lots of drugs :)

Basically on Rocky Ridge Dr., and Meadow Dr.. It has a few tiny rollers but other than that no hills.

oh man, merckx style? I'd rather people pass me when I have all my aero gear on. Way more humbling.

Trev said...

It is actually 3 loops, I forgot:

I will just be waking up at 10. Especially since it will be 12C in the afternoon.

You're right. But there's really nothing I can do.

Baby sitter found. Me and Alan are in.

Iguess I'd better leave the cross bike in the garage if everyone is geeking it up TT styley! See you Saturday!
