We’ve got a local TT series here and the next race is a Hill Climb, strava segment link below, 4.1 miles, 1,300 feet elevation.
My best time so far is 23:47, back at the beginning of March. FTP 220, rider weight 155lbs, Giant TCR SL, yes I have a power meter on the bike.
While its tough to see on the Strava elevation chart the climb is really in 3 segments: bottom 1/3 is moderate, 1 mile steep in the middle, and the last 2 miles is flatter, except the last 1/4 mile which ticks up steeper. What pacing tips and strategies can you offer for the best performance? THANKS!
