May 1, 2010 Kissena Track Kilo Times

Kilo times sorted with fastest time at the top regardless of category. I managed to make the top third, not a bad effort despite being sick. I have come to the conclusion - the Kilo is all about picking the right gear to suit the conditions for that particular day on an outdoor track. A disk wheel, aero helmet and aero bars only shave fractions of a second off your time over such a short distance. Also with a bumpy track such as Kissena it might even be a disadvantage to use aero bars since control is compromised, especially if your elbows are too close together. Then again the whole point of using aero bars is to present a narrow frontal area, so it defeats the purpose to put an aero bar on and then have your elbows splayed wide open as I have done to maintain control.
