Coach said: "ride 100km for time. And keep your stops under 8 min". Now, I am a champion time waster at stops.
I figured the West County 100km would be a good route.
Sunny day. Variable, flag-sticking-out-straight wind. Mostly WSW, so I was looking forward to some tailwind for the last 20 miles. (note: not so much)
all 3 stops under 8 min. (2 controls, 1 peel off extra clothes and flush stop)
food: Allen Lim's rice cakes - two of the egg-bacon-brown sugar-soy sauce variety and two of the coconut milk-sugar-chocolate chips-blueberry variety.
About 40-50 oz of liquids, including a bottle of V-8 at Gaston.
Chocolate milk at the end.
