Disappointment

Couldn’t ride tonight’s 10 mile TT to test my pacing theory myself because of this: Cerys was able to ride, worked to the same theory, and set a massive PB.

Myth Busted

Many say that if you use an high quality “open tubular” clincher tyre and a latex inner tube on a wide clincher rim you get equivalent ride quality to a tubular tyre. I tried it; it is in no way equivalent.
