So over here in the UK racing has been given the go ahead but with certain limitations in place for racing to happen. The limitations are basically making the race format 3 x 15 min Crits, with no more than 24 participants, with a short break between each race. The points are accumulated for all three races and there is an overall winner. Also there will be prime laps thrown in, just to make a potentially fast race even faster.
How would you play out the race?
And what is potentially the best strategy for me?
I’m 78kg and 1.78cm, with a 289w FTP. I would say my strength lies in my 1-5 min power, and I can generally hold 1100w for around 10 secs at the end of a race. To get an idea of what training I’ve recently been doing, I’m just about to finish GBMV and the start RR speciality phase.
An abandoned Airfield in a typical oval shape. On a previous race a friend did, it was only 300ft of elevation over 24.5 miles. Also, its super open to the wind with not one bit of cover, and is on a high ground. I guess the wind would play a big part in the race.
Other People Racing:
Its safe to say that no one will be working in teams and its the first race since March, so i guess there would be a massive difference in peoples fitness.
Any tips would be appreciated, TIA.
