    my Neo is consistently a couple of watts lower than my quarq d zeros looking at average over a longer session (2.5-4 hours), never looked at the shorter ones, I resume this is because of losses in the drive chain between the crank and the rear hub.

    I don't let it worry my pretty little head, as there's not a lot going on in there most of the time, but even less after 4 hours on the turbo...

    first "race" of the year at the weekend at Wokingham, unfortunately it falls in the middle of a block of training for ironman, and for a variety of reasons I can't afford to miss training to taper, so even getting close to my pb (1:23:49) would make me very happy, realistically 1;25 would be a good result to my mind, anyone else running there?

    small frame bag - looking at the rapha one or the apidura one, any recommendations between the two? or something else I should be looking at, more for long ride/credit card touring than epic adventures...

    its supposed to be your threshold pace, but personally i'd be amazed if i ever achieved an hour at that pace...

    only national champs are bc: that’s not the national distance champs I.e. 10,25,50 etc only “the national champs”

    Meanwhile I’m a member of two ctt affiliated clubs and didn’t do a single race with a club member from either last year!

    I think alex dowset has been allowed to race as a privateer as he has to race in Pro gear for the team etc, but think this is just in e region and is a special arrangement for him. Surely there is a club that’ll have you (the team i race for velolife.cc certainly would) and you might get a few club mates turn up and have a crack at team prizes?

    in my mission to complete 5x5k sub 20 with 5 minutes recovery between intervals, I made an unplanned advance today, session was supposed to be 3x15minutes, but training peaks was under maintenance and I'd forgotten so did 4x15 minutes, admittedly it was a little slower than eventual target pace done at 4:05, 4:06, 4:05 and 4:03, but the next step of 4x5k seems quite within reach...

    I use a an older version of these on the turbo, seem to survive my mega sweat levels so id have thought most people will struggle to break them...

    I also built myself a custom iPhone holders /fan mount out of bits of 2x4 and a beaten up old ikea bedside table that means I can use phone a zwift companion/music player and have my fan blowing on my face/chest and control the speed, i'll dig out a picture of the monstrosity..
