Missed the Sunday morning 3R 100km ride I wanted to do but probably for the best. I took it easy all week as had a touch of fluey illness that just wasn't shifting so was stacking up on sleep/rest in the hope not to get any worse. With wet & windy commutes I know I was risking it if I also had several hours of midweek damp garage air in me... Symptoms the same sunday but had cleared the head cold which had mostly left me with some phlegm causing a bit of an annoying cough I thought sod it. I wanted to keep some Fitness after what I'd gained doing the TdZ. If I got ill again, at least I'd lose fitness from that, not from the fear of it. Dived into a 'UKZwifters 100km Sportive'. Absolute joke of a course for Doubledraft and a 'friendly group sportive' with only a few riders. Not the first time I've tried one of these rides and left disappointed on how they're ridde. Much like any UK Sportive then! 6-7 times up the Volcano climb just meant huge gaps between groups, constant splits and stringing out of any riders actually riding well together. Chatting a bit, good effort up the first time to retain a good group but knew I couldn't repeat it many times if the pace didn't ease. Group split soon after the descent so just rode the next lap as recovery before heading to a Tour of Innsbruck ride which I knew would be more fun as far more riders (although probably more of the same type of riders!). Tour of Innsbruck // Stage 3. First half of this was awesome fun. Over 1000 riders, I settled into a good start but not too brutal after the previous riding. Settled into around 380th place. Legsnapper came and I felt good so put some wattage down to test the legs. They where really firing so I continued chasing a wheel. Really shouldn't have! Made up over 100 places, somewhere around 240th... Settled in recovering and telling myself I was silly. Dropped 20 places until a good group to surf wheels then Legsnapper came again. Paced it more this time, but still rode it too hard! Made up over 30 places. I was nearing the top 200 at this point but many of these groups where small and rolling 4+ turns so resting at much below 2.8w/kg was impossible, I really wasn't recovering! Legsnapper again, paced it much better and lost around 15 places this time. Closer to 300th but I kept easing to recover for the KOM. My numbers for Legsnapper on screen avg around 5w/kg first time, 4.5 second, 4.0 third. Really enjoyed it and felt I could continue those efforts a bit longer... But they did come back to bite me when the KOM came along... KOM was brutal, I initially paced it well but found myself starting to blow up and really dropping cadence. Settled down and dropped a bunch of places to try and find some slower groups to pace with. Really struggled to find any, any time I settled into a rhythum I'd find myself slowly blowing up and having to ease again. In the end I got caught and dropped so many times (even by a couple of friends who'd started the climb 70 & 100 places behind me). I did have a bit of power left at the finish but nothing I could sustain for long, or anything I could use to increase my later efforts. Utterly destroyed. 4 minutes down on my PR. Enjoyed it but really don't think I want to complete the rest of the Inns Tour (if there's catchup days) as there's only so much I can stick of that KOM. It hurts me. Half an hour of hell! You get the jersey from just completing a stage anyway, so why bother! Weird, no updated drivers for BT? To be fair I don't tend to use BT anymore, too many issues with it and I've found ANT+ stable and far more reliable since changing dongle. I'd have said the DCR one as I wasn't aware of the ZP one. Although I have delved into a 'hole' within ZP Race results where I found riders with more than 1 PWM recording I could overlay against their 'live' recording. Here's some from a ride of mine from the weekend - Huge kudos, thats quite a week! Either a bug, or a particular scenario due to being a light rider? Something to do with the 'game' mechanics which really dump your speed due to low weight, other riders carring more weight are not compromised the same?
