I don't think that's bad at all. Pretty fast, no?
How did you find the gear? Heavy? Okay? Do you know what other riders use in the Kilo on that track?
I'm curious because I've never done a Kilo. The record at the track where I race (very rough, with only 14 degree banking, 318 meters) is 1:13.9.
I know that the faster guys do a 12.x second 200m, and I struggled to get 13.6, so I'll be slower in the Kilo by a lot.
For the 3k pursuit, the faster guys were in the 3:50s (some with, some without aero bars). I did a 4:41
No aerobars but a TriSpoke/HED3 front wheel. Didn't make a difference, I wanted to stop after about 1.5 km. Based on that I figure I'd be hard pressed to do a 1:17 or 1:18 kilo.
Do you plan on returning to the track to try and better your time?
