PVC TT and Pursuits
We chose easier gears tonight meaning a new race style for Cyclisme.
Faster starts and smoother pedaling led to big leg speed.
Generally finish times were slower, but everyone felt better in their skin after using an easier gear.
Joshua and Sarah raced in 60 inch gears! It was slow going, but everyone was happy and looked fluid.
Pursuit racing means finding a tempo that can be raced every lap. Matching split times is the goal in training and most of the time in racing.
|DD doing it.|
In the beginning it is a bit of a shock to the system. However, it allows folks to go deep into the effort, and find something new.
For example: One person who really went deep into the back back tunnels of his subterranean hurt locker (pain cave) or area of high perceived exertion, was big Double D. Putting on an easier gear of 47x16 DD covered 2K in 3.12. That's over 23.3 miles per hour.
|Steer down to the black line!|
In the next few weeks, Word RCB by Cyclisme will see legspeed RPMs, and finish times improving!
