First TT even if it was on FulGaz

I have just done my first TT. Normally I do Gran Fondos. I decided to do the FulGaz TT to break things up a bit. It was a lot of fun. I am not sure how realistic it was. I did a ramp test yesterday with an FTP of 203. I averaged 190 watts on this TT. Not sure if that is good or not.

I think I will certainly do another one when they put one up.


I am 21st in the 50-54 age group so far, so quite happy with that.


That was a great effort 190/203 for 45mins.

I did one on Zwift two weeks ago and it was hard.


Likewise, I was hoping to do some club 10mile TTs for the very first time this spring, but Covid put paid to that. We’ve been doing them on Zwift instead … struggled to get pacing right for the first 2, but nailed last week’s (was actually a 15 miler). Managed to hold 93% of FTP for circa 40mins, which is big progress for me. Threshold workouts have definitely helped me calibrate better how hard I can go - also helps that I’ve been able to move the trainer outside (has been nice weather in UK until today…)
