Round two of the Cleveland Wheelers mini hill climb series and I’m getting more serious. Had a good talk to myself about putting the hurt on in the finish sprint. Nearly blew it in the mind game by looking at the forecast wind too much.
Aero tweeks – Cap worn backwards and no helmet. Legs and head still hairy.
Weight saving – Water bottle off. Saddle bag removed but bottle cages left in position. Tiny rear light fitted.
Tyre pressure – Around 115psi.
Nutritional supplement – A gel at 15minutes to go.
Weight Change since last year – +3.6lbs
Weather – A headwind but not as strong as I was expecting.
Result? – New PB by 4 seconds with a headwind. Went a bit harder at the bottom, although slower, and buried myself in the sprint but Strava suggests I was up on the previous week all the way up the main body of the climb so all good. Time to try another cog down the block next week.
Still a long way to go to get my target time though…
