2008 River Gorge Time Trial Report
This is probably the most scenic time trial that we do all year. The entire 4 mile time trial is on top of Raccoon Mountain around the TVA pump storage reservoir. Breathtaking scenery and steep drop-offs right on the course! My time was about 10-15 seconds faster than last year. I went out way too hard averaging 558 watts for the first 30 seconds. I spent the rest of the course trying to figure out how to recover and still go hard – never works well. Still, I am happier to have gone a little bit faster than last year. Here’s the graph!
- Going out way too hard (558 watt average)
- Trying to recover
- Not too bad on the climb
- The table-top flat reservoir road
- Ramping it up again for the finish
