I did a quick google search to see results for the Senior Olympics road race times. It looks like both the 20K and 40K have average speeds of 25mph to qualify. At this point I am carrying several (35 or so) extra pounds. I can average 15-16mph on these distances in this, my second summer of cycling.
I am wondering if a 4-year goal of qualifying for these events is even a remote possibility. The only race I have ridden is a sprint tri last year.
Is it possible? Any suggestions on what I need to learn about road racing?
