Fastest ride of the year, and not too displeased with this - only 33 seconds off my fastest time on this course (I rode the B10/9 several times in 2008, recording a 25:28, 25:40 and 25:29).
I have also 'blooded' the Cervelo - about 2 minutes before I started, somebody noticed my hand was bleeding. At the end of the race, my hand looked like this:
Anyway, I am starting to get used to the Cervelo, and have lowered the bars a little to try and improve my position. I think the main problem is still my inability to pace myself properly - I'm not pushing hard enough at the start of these races... will have a chance to improve matters in my next race, a 25 miler.
