|Kissena Velodrome State Championships using 92" gear|
I got close to that target at T-Town on August 21, 2010 with 1:17.45 (96"gear), previous best time at T-Town in 2009 was 1:19 (108" gear).
I also rode a personal best time of 1:20.59 (92" gear) at Kissena the following week beating my previous best of 1:20.80 (98" gear opening weekend).
The interesting point to note is that I used a 98" gear on opening weekend in May 2010 at Kissena and then used a 92" gear in August 2010. This season I worked on leg speed drills by doing high cadence work in small gears on the road, track and spin bike. The equipment used were pretty much the same except on opening weekend I used a tear drop helmet and then used a Casco Warp II helmet on the remaining two kilos. Although it would have been interesting to see what time I would have obtained had I used a 98" gear at Kissena this past weekend at the State Championships, since I continued lifting weights and doing plyometrics through out the cycling season.
At T-Town it was good to see how my time stacked up against the likes of national champions such as David Espinosa and other Masters around the region - well err, umm (you suck)........ I need to train harder / smarter and to find out what gear and cadence range suits my level of fitness at different points during the season.
