    have just discovered that they are on the TTF already!

    56:10, no not quite as bad as I thought, but still not great...

    another newbie question...

    how long do results usually take to get posted, unfortunately I had to dash off on Saturday before they had got my result from the time keeper, and would like to no even though it was somewhat slower than my previous attempt?

    last year she trashed me on the bike every time we raced including a race where she punctured and was walking back to the start and i threw her a can of pitstop, so is still very much in my mind every time i race!

    she closed the gap from 1.5 minutes to less than 45 seconds today, and some of that is closing the kit gap, but there's still the small issue of a disc wheel...

    Pre, hoping a calibration and new bearing will fix all, or it's going to be. An expensive August...

    my power meter is fecked, just displaying nonsense today - fucking annoying...

    shortish 56 on H25/8, I got my stalking wrong as i thought my 2 minute man was a bit quicker than he was so was feeling pretty good when he hadn't passed me at 15 miles as i thought losing by less than 4 minutes would have been a decent PB - maybe not!

    is overheating/dehydration not essentially the same thing, as while feeling too hot might not be pleasant, I've not heard of that actually inhibiting performance (obviously the resulting sweating and dehydration does) but would be interested in seeing evidence that it does!

    A fair point about sight being a bit more important for bunch racing/the track in general though! I suspect sometimes slightly dodgy sight isn't a hindrance to time trialling based on the danger and ridiculous kit people (including me) are prepared to try to eek out a few extra seconds...

    aren't you a trackie/sprinter?

    how much can you overheat and actually start to see performance losses as a result in the course of a track sprint race?

    the thinking among most time trailers is that for a 25, and possibly even a 50 the aero gains of a cleaner bike are more valuable than having a bottle and drinking from it, so unless a track is cranked up to wiggo hour attempt type temperatures I cant see how you'd negatively affect your performance by being as aero as possible at the expense of heat

    (genuine question)

    I use an attack with the nose pulled together with a zip tie, for extra narrowness to accommodate my mega thighs!

    how good are bike24 at comms, have ordered some stuff, and there's no order status on their website, will I get an email/tracking when its been dispatched, or should I be patient and just expect it to arrive roughly within the 2-4 days quoted at order?
