I’m doing the bike leg of a triathlon relay on Saturday. It’s at Daytona Speedway, so it’s as flat as can be. It’s reported to be 12.4 miles, so I’m guessing I should cover it in about 30 minutes.
My question is, how would you pace it? I’m thinking of starting at 95% FTP for the first 10 minutes. Then increasing to 100% and then 105%, respectively at 10 min intervals. Does that sound like a solid plan, or not so much?
Let me know what you guys suggest. I’ve done plenty of Triathlons, but this is the first time that I’m essentially doing a true TT without needing anything left in the tank.
