A 40k for fun

Decided I wanted to do a 40k for fun. There is a monthly TT series held 15 miles down the road and I've always sort of wanted to do it. I typically do long sweet spot interval so thought a 40k falls right in line with that. I nearly did it last year Merckx style, but slept in instead.

This year I got it lined up a bit more and got a TT bike from the team to use two days before so know it was game on! I've raced as a pro for 8 years, but never once did a 40km time trial. I did one as a junior / u23 after already doing a 20km and just missed out on going under an hour.
















Speaking of junior racing, this race started nice and early, just like those early days of racing. Had to get up well before the sun and watched the sun rise as I was registering. Heck the race was finished before the family even got up that Sunday morning!
















The race went pretty well. I had an idea of what my FTP was and the power I wanted to hold. However without doing an actual FTP test I wasn't quite sure. Turns out I was a bit off. Luckily I rode off of feel a bit more as I was able to put out more power than I would have thought. Just had a really good day. It was hard, but never felt in the box. I was able to keep it nice and consistent through out the whole effort.























I ended up winning the TT, first time winning a TT since being U23, and also went under an hour. Since it was my first officially sub hour 40km TT I had to take the T-shirt. I also got a nice shiny medal. Madelyn loves trophies and I gave it to her after her Kindy 500 box car race. She was excited about that!












Madelyn in her race. She's number 63.
