    Spin data predictions for Hillclimb nationals, obv doesn’t reflect the nature/length of the climb, just the recent form on entrants

    Yeah proper baller move uploading to Strava when doesn’t normally put everything up normally. I follow Laverack on YouTube etc and he’s gone all in training despite this not being a course that suits him that well, but is stuck on a bike for contractual/logistical bike supply reasons that’s about 7KG, really feel for him.

    That’s interesting, I know there’s a lot of people that swear by polarised but do wonder if there’s tipping point of hours you have to do to make it work.

    And clearly the TR approach has delivered results for you in the past, so makes sense to go back.

    If you do fancy something a little different I reckon you’d absolutely smash the top end of Zwift racing but appreciate that’s not everyone’s cup of tea!

    Sorry to hear hasn't gone as you've planned this time around, sounds like a bad string of luck.

    What'd you do differently on the training?

    I've essentially given up already this year as well DNS-ed on Saturday ostensibly as recovering from a bit of lurgy but really because I didn't think I was gonna go better than last year and the weather looked a bit shit.

    That was the only open I'd actually entered as I'd decided to leave them all last minute and missed a couple.

    My powers been improving but not been able to get my weight down to where I was last year, optimistically I'm probably up in absolute watts but level on W/KG terms. Been doing the ride load, eat loads, thing.

    Half tempted to get proper serious on food for a few weeks and give the closed road Ditchling Beacon a proper tilt, but if I couldn't get ass in gear already not sure I'm going turn it around now.

    I bailed on the Leith Hill one, but hoping to do all the South Downs / Stolen Goat series but might have to actually bite the bullet and enter some.

    You associated with club? Think events have to be done via clubs right?
