Fun race with the WBR gang again today. 3 laps Watopia Hilly.
I had to laugh when i saw the guy Pax out there, who beat me by 1s yesterday, but today i had the beating of him. We hung together until the little climb just after the village sprint, then i gapped him a bit, it was all over by the time we did the 2nd KOM climb, i had 15s on him and was comfortable.
Looking at the names, there was a C ahead of me, put putting out about 3.6w/kg average, thinking to myself "he'll get a DQ for that... " but i caught and passed him anyway and then he threw in the towel and bailed. I know Pax is a B and Teasdale was close to me who's down as a B, so i was happy with how i was going. I ended up 11s ahead of Pax, but i cruised some of the last KM and 30+ ahead of Teasdale who seemed strong enough to do me until the last lap.
ZP has me currently at 3.14w/kg and Strava at weighted av power of 291w which is pretty high all round for me. Sadly, ZP doesn't seem to have catagorised the riders into ABCD which they did yesterday, so i'm looking at 18th place finish, which kinda disappoints me as i feel looking at the results/power, i'd likely have had a C class win.
It's hard at the moment to find C group races that fit in with my times and availability, but i'm enjoying it and working hard, so i'm not going to complain
Rest day tomorrow as due outside on Fri evening with Crust.
