A fleeting visit to DISC for me on Sunday to cram study for the Metro Track Champs on the 15-16th Dec. I’ve got myself down for the 3000m Pursuit. You can get quite techie with this event so I’ve found out over the past couple of weeks. Today was a quick and nasty session to try and figure out;
Standing start half lap times.
Rolling lap times.
What gear to ride.
Once you have these you pump them into a Pursuit calculator (XLS spreadsheet) and Bob’s your Uncle you have a ‘schedule’ to ride to.
There was fuck all people there and I was able to drag out the gas starting block and give it a go too. To finish up the 3hr session I rode a dress rehearsal 3000m minus the starting gate and was happy with a time of 3:56. Race day could slash maybe another 5-10secs? We will see next Sunday.
