First the important stuff . . .
Take a look at that hot mamma!!! “War Pegasus” is ready to roll.
We rode the IM New Orleans 70.3 course this morning. WOW! The wind was killer! I was putting the hammer down and when I HAMMER I can hold 23 to 24 MPH for a long time. When I “Kill” it I can get up to 31 MPH without any wind on a flat run.
Today I was “hammering” and I was struggling to hold 14 MPH. Are you kidding me!? The good news . . . It is an out and back . . . THAT’S RIGHT!!!! We were smoking it on the way home.
I am feeling a bit better every ride. My power is coming back but I have a while before the endurance is back to where I want it to be.
I am going to race in a very small Duathlon in Lake Charles this coming weekend, March 1st. It will be a good test to see if I have my racing feet under me . . . less than 40 days until IM NOLA!
Two things I’ve had trouble with on the new wheels:
1. Getting the tufo sealant into the 1080 – I figured it our. You have to put the sealant in before your tape it to the wheel.
2. The brakes don’t work properly for the tubular wheels. I may be learning something new. Do you use different brake pads or something with tubular????
Have a great week. It looks like the season is about to begin . . .
