So... no noon ride? Doesn't matter, as you top-10'd Kings Mtn with no race wheels! 22 minutes is a long time to hold 315 watts. And also, 17 mph average up portola?! Crikey!
No, we decided to skip the noon ride. We've done a plenty of OLH lately. As for King's and Twin Peaks from Portola, this is what the big ring can do for you. That's how Greg and I did the entire ride from the start of Skyline.
6,900'?!!? I am sure my legs did not have another 2,3k in them today! Do you ride a compact or standard crank on that parlee?
@James A compact (50/34), because I want to have real knees well into old age. ;) I ride an 11-25 cassette (11-speed) in the rear. What about you, standard 53/39 crankset or compact?
Precisely the same everything. But a 10-speed ultegra group. Oh, and I weigh 158lbs., probably 20+ more than you, Contador....
