Last Thursday night I took part in Round 1 of the @GoZwift Community League race. A multi week league for teams. The #GreenwichTritons took part with 4 riders and 407 other male cyclists. Long story short I, somehow, won Category D🥳🥳🥳❗So I'm the fastest rider of the weakest group/category 💪💥👊😂😂.
Now I feel pressured to try to make the start line next week to defend that position 😀. Race report:
Course: NYC Everything Bagel
Men's race: 411 riders across 4 categories, from Pro/Semi-Pro cycling teams, including 4 Tritons. James, Paul, Scott and I.
37 starters. No Tritons.
Undulating course over 34.4km.
2 steep climbs of 1->1.4km with gradients reaching 16% in parts. Fast and furious from the start. Brutal climbs.
I maybe pushed a little too hard on the 1st climb (got a PB), so paid for that a little in the 1st half of the race. About mid-way I folded into a group of 4-5 riders. We stayed together until about 10km to the finish, where they dropped me. During the time in the group I saved lots of energy. From there i was conscious that my fellow Triton Scott was catching up and I was fading. I just tried to hang on till the finish line.
Final Tritons race results by w/kg category:
Cat A. 38th 48:43 James Donaldson
Cat B. 83rd 55:46 Paul Morrison
Cat C. 52nd 1:09:10 Scott Fenwick
Cat D. 1st 1:08:57 Me
I had a great time. If you want to see my suffering, link to my live stream video is in my bio.
I'll upload a highlights reel of the race once YT finishes processing it.
I wonder if @iamspecialized_tri pay attention to stuff like this 😋
We are super stoked when Chee Wee @projectb2design passed us a neat little box to store all the spare adapters for the #kickrclimb. You will never misplace your spares! Show us your #kickr setups by tagging #wahoosingapore. We would love to see all the creative stuffs you've done!
Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!! Hope you were showered with love by the ones who mean the most to you. 💕
Little tempo ride for me tonight. Legs feel TIRED. Looking forward to my recovery ride tomorrow 😊 #happyvalentinesday
Whether you’re a cycling singleton or a tandem pair, come join us this Thursday at 5pm and 6:30pm for THE WRETCHED at our cycle studio! Prepare for the best kind of loving anguish!
(We also have our 6am weekend warmup on Friday, in case you really really do want to go out for dinner tonight.)
A new year means new goals and new devices! For 2019 I’ll be making the upgrade to the new @wahoofitnessofficial#Kickr. It has an upgraded 16 lb fly wheel to have an even more realistic outdoor riding experience as well as it being a virtually silent trainer (minus the noise from the drive chain). Let the riding begin! #wahooligan#wahookickr 📸@michael_stuyvesant
Jared ended up with a extra few days off...so what did he do tore up the carpet and installed new floor for my pain cave. Love when we get to do little home improvement projects with Jared (and Cooper too). So thankful for my Kickr it has done amazing things for my leg and recovering.
