You wouldn't be if you knew the levels of pain it's been to organise the trip and get all the necessary covid clearances etc. And apart from 2 days in heaven on earth, I'll be working solid for 3 weeks. But it'll be worth it. Just hope I don't spanner myself getting carried away on A Line as my employer will not be happy.
Yep, using the old FlightDeck system. A very odd system as it gave a cadence reading even if you were freewheeling. Much proprietary, very out of date.
Flight Deck! That was it!
I mean, I could've googled it but that';s not such funl. So drink
Out of the blue Abdullah did his second 24h try. No buildup videos on youtube and on Instagram he posted on november 1st that he was attempting it "in 6 weeks". There are Instagram stories of the ride on his account but I missed the live. :(
Anyway, the ride: https://www.strava.com/activities/6258493958
Fuckton of watts. If only he had ££ for aeros
Stopped for 37min? Could've done another 20k+ in that time.
I can't see anyone beating Strasser's record for a long time (now someone will immediately take it)
Any ultra racing that allows you to compete with a lid?
what about e-bike? it's something that a day will be possible. I'm seriously thinking to allow them to race, maybe in another classification, like PAIR-SOLO and E-BIKE.
In NCT, the organizer was driving a Tesla. With less than ideal charging possibilities he wasn't able to keep up with me/the head of the through the Nordics and Baltics, only caught us in Poland I think.
#notsohumblebrag but ebikes would have their own weird game.
They also allow all kinds of weird bikes there, as long as they don't have a motor.
Given current energy density of batteries you would need maybe 4-5 to get a full day's riding. That's assuming you stay in a hotel every night, double if you bivvy one night.
And a charger for each battery unless you want to get up every hour or so to swap them over.
