TT at Kialla

Have TT bike, will travel.

This weekend it was a shorter journey, but still required an early start from home.  Kialla is just south of Shepparton and I envisaged, correctly as it turned out, a flat course.

This time I made sure my brake pads were well clear of the rims and this time I was happy with my effort.  However, due to not quite understanding the start procedure and expecting as usual to be early off, I stopped my warm up waaaaay too early and so essentially the first part of the race was done "cold".  As a result I had to back off a bit at about 2 km into the race as I knew my HR was peaking far too soon.

There was a sort of a tail wind along the first long straight of the  square course, then a tail wind across the short top section and a very nasty final long leg before a struggle to the end.

Next week Benalla with the Hume vets, then a bit of a break to recover and get back to long training rides.
