Well it was only a Time Trial! But surely the race against the clock is the purest of all races? Either way I don’t care, I got myself a gold cup tonight in the British Cycling Time Trial Series.
I surprised myself on 29th October when I entered the TT series and came 2nd. I wasn’t sure if I just got lucky and it was a weak field but it would appear that 320(ish) watts is podium territory in Cat C.
My target when entering the event was to get my time under 25 minutes, and I scraped in by 5 seconds, but I also got the added bonus of a new FTP of 303 watts. So I end the night well happy. A new FTP, a gold cup and the knowledge that promotion does not mean you’ll remain at the back of the group.
Fingers crossed I can keep this up and get a few more wins as I am really enjoying the TT.
