Early Bird Crit

Did one of the Early Bird Training Crits on Sunday.

Focused on being smooth and moving around in the pack. Got some good tips on that from a team training camp the previous day and it paid off. Matching speed and "backing" into line rather then trying to find a big gap. Wasting a lot less energy.

Early Bird Crit Warmup

Followed the crit with a sprint clinic and drills.

In my general training, have moved from only working on endurance to both endurance and FTP. Want to be in good form in April.

Winter Coast Ride

Also have given up on the Garmin Vector. Doesn't look like team Garmin is running them at their training camp or Tour Down Under. Ordered a Quarq power meter.



  1. Nice! Grats on the powermeter! I am trying to save up for one too.

  2. Eventually I'd like to get a power meter, but I'm still holding out for the vectors. Just because I'm trying to cut down on bike-related spending. And I still need to get a race wheelset.
