It went pretty well, thanks.
I finished 2nd in the 35+ 1/2/3 at 25:45.
I think I lost by about 35 seconds. Maybe if I lost 3-4 pounds....
By comparison the KOM went to a Pro/1/2 who was under 24 minutes.
Maybe if I lost 5 pounds.....and gained 50 watts
I wish I had taken the time to check out the course before the race, but I don't think it made that much of a difference.
I was the first starter in the 35+ and started 30 seconds behind the last 55+. I caught a lot of them, so there was always someone in my sights to catch.
Did you do it?
