Prologue Pacing Stra-tee-jury...?
Just like Bush said.
Anyways, in a somewhat serious manner, I have the state road race weekend coming up, and I'd like to place well in the Cat 3 Omnium. I am by no means a TT monster, but I do have this card to play: the TT is almost entirely uphill, something that is rarely seen in the state of Illinois.
So here's the deal: it's not a true Time Trial, in the 40k, aerobars, tri-geek sense of the word. It's ~6km/3.65mi long, and gains about 250ft total along the way. It should be fast, but the elevation change should be enough to help me along the way.

Here are the relevant pieces of information:
weight: 65kg at the moment
aerobars: vision tech mini clip ons
5min: unknown. I realize that would be helpful but I always do those as part of a pyramid or after other repeats.
