June 27 – Highwood Triangle is On

Minimalist theme this year – solo again, minimal notice, minimal supplies, but maximum preparation. I’m headed clockwise this year through Longview – the wind looks favorable on that front.

Update – wrong call on the wind. Ride aborted at km 107 in the wind and rain. Boy it was fast coming home. Overall 212km. 7:20 riding. 8 hrs total. 4741 kJ.

I’m racing on my first new bike in years – Cervelo S5 with Di2 – what a treat. Dura-ace 7900 SRM fits the BBright with no problems. For the TT, I use 3T clip on bars, Hed Stinger wheels, Giro aero helmet.
Realtime SRM telemetry accomplished using mapmytracksavocado mytracks bridge android software, and Sony Xperia arc phone.
I had a wheel problem in the prologue –  it was unnerving for the first 250m, I couldn’t decide to stop and fix it or not, and then I just rode. The finish came pretty fast, and before I knew it the race was over. Continue reading Banff Bike Fest Race Report
