long time no posting, raced CX this season, turns out I'm not horrible at it, started the year being staged at the back of races, ended the year finishing and staging in the upper half, even top 20 a couple of times (I did get a top 10, but it was out of 15 lol). I think with a little more fitness and continuing to improve my positioning I do some top 10s in larger fields next year. For now, I'm halfway doing sweet spot base 2 high volume with trainerroad. Got my ftp from 275 to 285 in SSB1, not really expecting much of anything in SSB2, but would love another 5w by the time I get through build. Road racing won't really be my focus, as i really do enjoy being all in with CX, but I think a 285-290w ftp (hopefully at 4.14w/kg) would make me a lot less mediocre in the few road events I may do, especially if I can improve 10min power during build.
