TT2A racing :: 70.3 Busselton

Our favorite T2A daughter races this weekend in Perth. Suzi or Suzanne for those who have met her in her natural pose has a 70.3 to tackle in Busselton. In fact, May has Busso, Mallorca, Aix and Austria with seven racing under T2A. Ceratinly the month of the 70.3’s. Chief

I would be happy with that based off your work schedule these past few months. They are pushing you there, enjoy your mates down there and simply go out and have fun ( and validate your Oz visa which is why your going down). CP

Go Sport Cycling Criterium

I love race reports but this one simply tells the story so well with our bike race did yesterday team. Stuey lead the T2A crew well as usual and they bled for him as promised 🙂 Special note has to go out to Sellar who destroyed the Duathlon, only to back it up with a truly romantic break away the next day against pure bikers. Yes, he won Friday and backed it up Saturday and we know 🙂 A superb weekend of backing up what we are famous for, showing team camaraderie that is not all bullshit, its genuine!! Thanks for this below report Clipboard, a great insight to the bike race!! CP

Race report :: Go Sport Criterium 26 April 2014

29 starters lined up for the last of 3 races in the Go Sport criterium. T2A had done okay in the first 2. I took 3rd in the first race, Jimmy Cresswell nearly made a romantic solo break stick in race 2 but both races had featured some pretty lazy riding from others and a Revolution Cycles team bossing the race. With a race format of one hour plus one lap round the camel track 8k loop with a sprint around half way, we thought there was an opportunity to get a group away which could make it to the finish.

Several people showed interest and a team was formed with myself, Piers, Sellar, Andy V, Jimmy and Marshall. Glen even made a special trip over from Oman to join in the fun.  The plan was to try and get me the intermediate sprint with help from Glen and Piers and then for the other 4 to launch an all out attack as the group slowed down. Like all great plans, it nearly unravelled before the race even started. Andy Veall had an accidental party the night before and turned up unsafe to ride, then it appears James got stuck behind some learner riders at the start and that was the last we saw of him. To be fair to James the start was brisk.  At 47 seconds into the race we hit 49.8kph and then after a slight lull, 50.5kph – you’re not getting back onto that train riding on your own.

As with all bike racing, the average speed does not tell the whole story – 38.3 average for the first 8.05k Garmin split sounds comfy, but my peak heart rate would beg to differ. Glen and Piers may have some interesting power numbers, my heart rate topped out at 178bpm on lap one. The next lap was pretty similar – lots of attacks being launched but nobody strong enough to get away. Glen, Simon, Sellar and Piers kept an iron grip on the bunch making sure no groups of 4 or more got off the front without one of our riders in it. Smaller groups we gave some latitude to as there did not look to be anyone strong enough to last for 5 laps out there alone.

Lap 3 got a bit cagey as everyone got ready for the intermediate sprint. There are 2 problems with the sprint at the camel track. First, the final straight is longer than anyone ever thinks, it’s 1.7k from the last corner to the line. Second, in the morning it normally has a headwind and most people are used to the tailwind you get at night. The plan was to stay out of trouble with Glen and Piers taking me up the outer, windy side with about 500m to go, dropping me off with about 150m to go. The group got pretty tense round the top bend with 2 big surges from the 38kph we had been doing to 45kph twice.  As we slowed from the second surge we hit the front a bit earlier than planned with 1.2k to go and then Piers and Glen just lit the afterburners, putting in a 2 minute turn that took us from the 32kph we had dropped to, all the way up to 47kph with 150m to go (into a cross/headwind don’t forget).  Piers dropped me off in perfect position, but I’d burnt too many matches staying with him as he cranked it up and my heart rate had skyrocketed to 190 by the time I hit the front. Suffice to say that I wasted the guys good work by exploding about 10m after Piers dropped me off. It felt like someone had opened a parachute on my back and about 10 people dashed past me before I finally hit the line

So, a failure on the first part of the plan and only 2 riders to implement the second part. As we rounded the corner after the sprint and the speed came down to 30kph, Sellar and Marshall dropped the hammer. They quickly put 50m into the group as they got away with one other guy. The peloton initially started to react, but the ferocity of the previous sprint meant some of the stronger people needed to recover and the chase fractured into 2 groups. Glen, Piers and I were in the second of the 2 groups and had to put in some work to get to the first chase group. My hope was that as the groups merged, people who had been working would look for others to do their turn and the chase would lose some momentum.

Sure enough, after 3.5k at an average over 40, the pace dropped and the break got some breathing space. By the start of the next lap, Simon and the other chaser had lost Chris and he was out on his own.  There were some counter attacks at this point and the speed came back up for the next 4k, but there was also a bit of confusion about whether there was anyone still out there – we certainly weren’t going to tell them.  Piers, Glen and myself sat near the front, but when we rolled onto the front would take our turn at a speed about 1kph slower than the group had been going and wait for people to come around. I even managed an oscar winning performance of ‘man working very hard on bike’ when I got my turn

There was a pretty nervous moment at the end of lap 5 as we wondered whether Chris would go by the finish in under an hour. If he had done he would have had to last 2 more full laps rather than 1. Fortunately, the klaxon sounded for the start of the last lap with Chris rolling through with around a minute’s gap

The bunch started to ready itself for the sprint, but this time Piers was feeling like stretching his legs after working hard for others for the remainder of the race.  He jumped off the front with just over a kilometer to go and held off everyone else to finish second to Chris, 2 seconds clear of the remains of the peloton. Everyone else finished safely in the bunch and James bravely battled round doing 6 full laps on his own to finish just 10 minutes down

Chris picked up both the win and the fastest lap. I now need to go and get myself into some kind of shape before next year’s races. Many thanks to everyone for coming and racing today. Everyone seemed to have fun, maybe coach can be persuaded to get some cycle kit on next year’s kit list. It would be great for everyone’s bunch riding skills and top end to get involved in this kind of stuff. You do need to be careful, but I feel it’s worthwhile giving it a go.

TT2A racing :: Giant Duathlon Race 9

Race 9 was held at the Sevens Camel Track. The format of the final race of the series was 5km/ 47km/ 5km. The race started at 6am and the weather conditions were good. The team performed well albeit Andy V went to the wrong Camel Track and Marci thought the race started at 6.30am, but they both still threw themselves in to the race on arrival regardless of starting behind everyone else 🙂 Race Report :: Giant Duathlon 25 April 2014 From Chris Sellar’s perspective..

Got there nice and early, didn’t feel good, felt tired, run down and a bit grumpy as I knew Olivier would turn up and bury me on the bike. But I set up and had a warm up run with Suz. I felt good, legs felt easy and there was no sign of Olivier, but Jimmy, Marshy and Dieter were there. So I thought, “Okay, this is going to be a different kind of race, probably one where I’m hunted on the bike by three guys who can really ride”.
The gun went (one Gu before the run) and I settled into 3.30’s, much quicker than I thought I should be going, but my HR was 175bpm, not 180bpm so I knew I wasn’t red lining. I was conscious someone was tracking me but didn’t realise it was Dieter till the turn at 1.25km, I held my pace and began to ease away from him. Marshie was in a group of 4 some way further back.

The second lap I saw Marcy just starting and felt sorry for her starting late, she had a lot of work to do to catch the girls. By the time I got to the bike I had averaged 3.34’s (17.52mins at 175bpm AVE HR) for the first 5km and had gapped Dieter by 150-200m and Marshies group by a bit more. I took off because I thought Marshie and Dieter’s group would come together pretty quickly and start working.

The bike was 4 laps of the big camel circuit (11.5km). There were nice tail winds heading out (45kph), headwinds and slight hill round the bottom section (31-34kph), then slight tail winds coming back (36-37kph). I kept looking back but didn’t see anyone except those I had passed in the short course. I kept my tempo pretty solid all the way through, just thought of those AQ 70km’s at 36kph and thought “I can TT this steady without blowing”. Heart rate was 175-180bpm, holding steady. One Gu at the start of the bike, another half way through. When I didn’t see anyone chasing I knew that all I had to do was hold my composure for the 5km run and I had it. Bike was 1.13.34hrs for 47km at 176bpm AVE HR. 38.1kph average speed, big improvement on the 37kph I managed over 50km in the previous Duathlon, well happy with that.
Straight into the run (last Gu), I was determined to try and back up the second run similar to the first, legs felt a bit odd, had a stitch but was running 3.40’s, I could live with that. Got to the 1.25km turn and saw one guy coming the other way. I timed the split to him at 1.15mins (it was Marshie), that meant he was 2.30mins behind me. He was followed by Jimmy, one other guy and Dieter. I was surprised to see that Dieter must have been passed by Marshie and Jimmy on the bike and not worked with them. I timed Marshie again at the 2.5km turn, now he was at 1.37mins, that meant 3.14mins behind, good news for me. I enjoyed the last 2.5km and was able to pick it up a bit in the finishing straight. Second run was 18.51 at 177bpm AVE HR for 3.46’s per km. Marshie finished 2nd (3.39mins back) with Dieter finishing strong in 3rd and Jimmy holding 5th in a sprint finish.
Brilliant morning with great performances all round from the team: Claire and Dieter, Suz and Marcy, Andy Veal, Marshall and Anders. I took the Series win, Jimmy 3rd male and Q 3rd Female.
