What a good night! My goal was to go in to the TT and hold 275 watts the entire way uphill or down and I NAILED it. In fact I felt so good at the end that I pulled 550 watts at the finish hill. Obviously I have been riding this thing the WRONG way for 2 years.

Since Garage Racing bought a bunch of spots I was out of luck until the very last moment and Lang tossed me in the 5pm group. I raced and then I threw my other bike (I brought my TT bike as well) on one of the spin trainers in the back and rode a virtual race while the 6pm guys rode on. I fiddled with my position a bit halfway through but I think I have it dialed in.
2 lessons learned-
1- pace yourself, idiot (I’m going to tape that to my bars next week!
2- sign up earlier than the day before :-)
Next weeks goal – 285 watts.
