Last Sunday was my first race.
Short version: dropped, bridged back, dropped again, lapped . Avg 24mph but the constant surging out of corners killed me.
I had no structured training plan going into the race. I decided a month in advance that I was going to do it. Found a group. Rode well with them and thought I would do okay.
My next race is 7 weeks away hope to race as much as possible aftwerwards. I've bought Friel's book and I've been up late researching specific posts on this forum. I've found out that this is a very tough sport but I love it. So, how would you train?
I would say I have a max of 10 hours a week to train. If I have to start a base period I'm fine with that too. Thanks for any advice. I just don't want to get lapped in front of my girlfriend and her dad again
