Tonight was my second TT of the year, it was out on the Phelpston loop again. The last time we were out there it was cold rainy and a strong southeast wind. It Basically the exact opposite as tonight’s conditions. Nice sunny, and a lighter northwest wind. The funny part was we had 14 riders out on the crappy night but only 9 out tonight. (As a side note, I’m watching lost right now, and I can’t believe it just gets better and better. I almost gave up on this show in the second season. I’m really glad I didn’t) back to the TT. (Like seriously, this is fracking awesome)
My game plan for tonight was too head out at a conservative pace into the headwind keeping my legs turning over 100 rpm. Once I made the second turn at the halfway point and turn into the tailwind, I stuck it in my 53 11 and did my best Jan Ullrich impression, and brought my average wattage up another 30 watts for the final 7.5 km. I finished with a time of 22:18, which was 1:46 faster than my previous time on that course. Granted I did push more watts, on a faster bike, but I still think the conditions were faster. It seemed like everyone was about a minute faster. It was fast enough to lock up first with Kyle Fry second and Keith Columbus third.
Im pretty happy with the ride also because I set new wattage pr’s for 5 10 and 20 mins. I feel pretty good heading into this weekend. The title refers to the insane amount of mosquitoes.(see picture) I had to drive with all my windows down to try and blow them out. Well I have to get up early and head to the airport so ill leave it at that.
