Weekend Time Trial
Saturday saw Stuart Stow and myself head up to Long Bennington (near Nottingham) for the Veteran’s National 10 Championship. While we successfully dodged almost all the rain it was a very exposed course in a flat area, this meant 20-30 mph head to crosswind on the way out and a howling tailwind at times on the return. I had some issues with a rebellious power meter miscalibration so went off quite a lot too hard (it was reading low) but at least it was into the wind so the effort not completely wasted though it did likely cause a weaker second half than the more ideal approach of building power into the ride. I recorded 20:20 with Stuart 22:17.
