2008 River Gorge Time Trial Report

August 23, 2008 at 9:28 pm Leave a comment

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!

Tough game tonight, the bats are going to start connecting soon for the Mets! Flat ride, lots of traffic, boring and dangerous. Old railroad and mining structures
