From my other thread, I think I'll end up doing the Cat 5, 24-mile (40k) race.
So, what kind of strategy to you use in a 24 mile race? I'm not much of a sprinter, but I can sometimes break away from the strong riders during my local group rides, even when we are all trying to race each other.
Should I try and break away early and tough it out? Or should I go about 20k and then try and break away for the last half of the race?
The riders in this race will all likely be able to do the whole race strong without much problem.
