Does the TR team get a corporate parking/camping spot at 24HOP? If not, get there as early as possible, preferably Wednesday or early Thursday. 24 Hour Town fills up fast. Also, Thursday night is a really fun social.
Thanks for talking me off the ledge on going for the high volume plans. Going to focus on getting the consistent 400-500 TSS for a year doing a base, build, base, build, specialized cycle all on mid volume.
Hello, really enjoy watching your podcast Question about cooling. In the podcast you guys spoke about how effective thermoregulation is when training indoors and how this can affect performance. I tend to struggle indoors to produce much power (indoor FTP is 240W), but outdoors Ive held 290W for a 40km TT. I usually train indoors for 4 out of my 5 weekly workouts (with runs and swims on top of this), and my one “long/fun” ride is outdoors where I can hold significantly higher power outputs for the same perceived effort at significantly lower power outputs indoors (eg 250 Watts outdoors feels like 200 Watts indoors). This is my question, is all my indoor training where I am exposed to much higher levels of heat making my body better adapted to cooling itself, then when I go outdoors this effect allows me to push higher Watts because my body doesnt need nearly as much energy to cool itself as it is adapted to expelling more heat? (from the indoor sessiosn).
Question stemming from this PC. Johnathan briefly mentions stiffness and power transfer to the cranks. I was wondering if any conclusive work has been done on this subject? Are we talking 1-3 watt loss or? Just curious as I have an old noodlly titanium steed and am looking for concrete evidence to present to my wife so I can get a Venge; because it looks like the best bike I have ever seen.
After you test everything for 24 HOP, then come be serious for the 24 summer solstice MTB race up in Canada! https://www.chicoracing.com/24hour
lots of daylight, the most all year! always a fun time, you guys would love it.
Took part in a 24 hour team-relay at Brands Hatch GP Circuit here in the UK about a fortnight ago. Safe to say the first three turns at between .94-.89IF with 100ft/mile of climbing including a few double digit grades was a bold strategy, especially in a team of three…
I cant promise that itd be ready for your 24 HOP, but I helped these guys beta test this light at last year’s 18hrs of Fruita, and its great! A compact and terrific handle-bar mount light for Mountain Biking. It should have sufficient battery life for an hour long lap, without having to carry an additional battery.
Hello! I loved this show (like all of them really). For some reason I am super intrigued by the 24 hour race and was considering signing up. But I was too late and now I am on the waiting list. Does anyone know (a) how to find out what the chances are of getting in when on the waitlist? (b) if there are any teams still looking for people? I guess I may just have to wait a year… while living vicariously through you and your detailed and awesome reports how to prepare for the event.
